We still have five seats available for the upcoming PhD course on “Rethinking methods in challenging times: The Skagen Conference 2016.” November 21-25, 2016 in Skagen, Denmark. Join us for a week of intensive writing, walking on the Danish Coastline, and exploring transgressive methods for studying social life in the 21st Century
This course addresses the centrality of methodological decision-making as a part of ethically grounded, context-sensitive research conduct.
This year, I’m hosting Grounded Theory, or GT Fridays at Aarhus University. This book club is open to anyone who’s interested, and the best news is that if you’re a PhD student, you can get credit for participating!
