Stuff about research methods

On occasion, I write about specific discussions on research methods I am pondering, or books I am reading. I decided to create a page specific for those blog posts.

On the importance of teaching robust work using qualitative methods in the social sciences.
I am often frustrated by how some people seem to think qualitative methods are somehow “easier”. They’re not. BUT we need to teach them properly so other scholars can understand their importance, relevance and rigor.

Tales of the Field (Van Maanen 2011)

This post summarizes my reading notes on Van Maanen’s ethnographic classic. One thing I loved about Van Maanen is that he provides excellent advice on how to write field notes.
