If you have little experience with Qualitative Research (QR), you will learn about data used, questions asked, and the ways knowledge is produced and used. If you are in the early stages of a QR project, you will learn about particular strengths of qualitative methods and ways of ensuring your project is trustworthy even in a pandemic!

** This is part of a Workshop Series on "Geography Methods during a Pandemic"
This series will aim to support graduate students if COVID-19 impacted or prevents them from using the method they had in mind, and receive some support from workshop organizers on those methods. Students are encouraged to attend as many workshops as they can to gain a better understanding of the versatility of geography, its possibilities, and so they can adapt their method or process in case it was impacted by the pandemic. These workshops will also serve as a venue for students of any geographic specialty to connect with one another.
