DIJ Method Talks

May 26th 2021 – ongoing

Organization: Nora Kottmann

This lecture series is part of our research focus Area Studies: Methodological Approaches. Researchers from all disciplines of the social sciences give talks on methods and methodological questions regarding their research on, in and beyond Japan – or Japan in a global or transnational context. They discuss ‘classic’ methodological approaches and questions as well as new approaches, challenges and trends. Topics that will be addressed include: doing qualitative research in times of social distancing, mixed methods research, gender sensitive methods/research, the impact of the digital transformation on methods, research in times of increasingly competitive university/academic labor conditions, methods in inter- or transdisciplinary research etc.

Join us to discuss these and further issues with internationally established scholars!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all events are held online until further notice.

Various events planned from September 2021 onwards (tbd)

The DIJ Method Talks are part of the DIJ Social Science Study Group, a forum for scholars conducting research on contemporary Japan. Meetings are held once a month and are open to speakers from all disciplines of the social sciences. The event is open to all.
