About

By consequence of the success of the first two Editions in Pisa (2016 and 2017), with the participation of about 120 students coming from all around the world, as well as of the 2018 Edition hold in Lithuania, with the involvement of the School's founders as teachers, the Department of Political Science of the University of Pisa is realizing the IV International Summer School on Grounded Theory and Qualitative Methods.

These school will help you retain the flexibility of Grounded Theory while furthering the conceptual depth and scope of your analysis. We will emphasize how to (1) develop and recognize powerful codes, (2) engage in comparative analysis, (3) strengthen your emergent conceptual categories, and (4) integrate these categories into a coherent and compelling report, (5) satisfy quality in qualitative analysis, (6) communicate your findings and (7) deal with CAQDAS to improve your analyses. We will also address the fit between Grounded Theory and Symbolic Interactionism and how the method and perspective complement each other. The Summer... [-]
