Course Syllabus

Abstract

This course familiarizes students with methodological issues raised by interpretation in political science scholarship and provides them with an introduction to the use of qualitative methods for analysis of political phenomena. The course encourages students to reflect on how they conceptualise, design and analyse the political world. This involves exploring the relationship between theory and empirical research with particular emphasis on the collection and analysis of qualitative data (namely, the techniques of participant observation, in-depth interview, digital ethnography). The course explores ethnographic methodologies and various interpretive approaches used in works from fields such as politics, public policy, International Relations, global governance studies and (critical) development studies. It also considers practical methodological strategies that will aid students to design their own research with a proper fit between research questions and methods.
