GEOG3036 Writing Spatial Stories through Qualitative Research (3 units)
Since the 1980s qualitative methods have assumed an increasingly central importance in human geography globally. This course introduces students to the diverse realm of qualitative approaches to geographical research. It provides an overview of key methods and methodological debates and their connection to geographical concepts and theories. This knowledge will serve as the foundation for the development of competencies in research design and practice, including defining a research problem, conducting a literature review, selecting research methods, collecting and analysing data, and interpreting results. Students will gain “hands on” experience with different qualitative methods and research techniques, while coming to grasp their utility for solving a range of geographical research problems, often in ways that are complementary to quantitative methodologies.
