‘Key concepts and methods in ethnography, language & communication’

Is ‘qualitative data analysis’ too vague for you?
Are you wondering how to do justice to your data?

If you are researching social processes, institutions, culture or identity, but are unsure about how to analyse the discourse data from your fieldwork, then consider joining this three day research training course.
The programme is designed to help advanced students to navigate the twin perils of over- and under-interpreting discourse data. It introduces perspectives and tools for the micro-, genre- and transcontextual analysis of language and communication, and it facilitates the ethnographic study of social practice in different settings (e.g. education, workplace, recreation).

The course was initiated with UK Research Council funding in 2007, and it has run every year since then. The course held at the University of the Western Cape in February will be taught by Prof Ben Rampton (Director) and Dr Adam Lefstein.
This workshop promises to be a highly useful introduction to data analysis in our discipline, by two highly regarded international scholars.

Places will be limited, so please notify agrovers@uwc.ac.za (cc zannie.bock@gmail.com) by 20 January 2016 to reserve your place if you would like to attend.
