Abstract: "Methods of Explorative-Interpretative Social Research - A Quick Overview"
This colloquium session will be dedicated to discuss the structure of a reasonable research methods track for our new master program and our contribution to the Twente Graduate School. Originally, I was asked to give an overview on "qualitative" research methods for our PhD-ers. Thus, it will be part of my short presentation to offer a systematic overview of explorative-interpretative research (EIR) methods. The overview will follow the research process rather than limit itself to canonic categories.
