7th Swiss Festival of Qualitative Methods: "Open data and qualitative research in the social sciences"

The seventh edition of the "Swiss Festival of Qualitative Methods" will take place on Monday 9 and Tuesday 10 September 2019 at the University of Lausanne (Géopolis building). The Festival presents recent innovations in the field of qualitative and mixed methods. During this edition, it will highlight the issues and challenges raised by open data in the field of qualitative research, through three thematic workshops and two plenary sessions.

The Festival offers a platform for exchange for researchers in the social sciences and humanities (and especially for doctoral and post-doctoral students) wishing to learn new methods.  It also aims to bring together the qualitative research community active in French-speaking Switzerland and will be conducted mainly in French. More specifically, renowned specialists will be available to discuss the application of methods and theories in various research workshops. Participants who so wish will have the opportunity to address issues as close as possible to their concerns.

Registration deadline: 5 September 2019
