"VON EINSCHRÄNKUNGEN ZU NEUEN PERSPEKTIVEN ERFAHRUNGEN UND REFLEXIONEN ÜBER SOZIALWISSENSCHAFTLICHE DATENERHEBUNG WÄHREND DER COVID-19-PANDEMIE"The COVID-19 pandemic has led to traditional methods of data collection being difficult to implement. Consequently, many social scientists have had field phases postponed, research designs redesigned and adapted to the changed framework conditions, and digital solutions were applied. These experiences raise numerous questions and make a methodological reflection necessary: What have we learned in the social sciences over the past two years about data collection? What new impulses for data collection could be found in quantitative as well as qualitative research? Which solutions were taken, which compromises have been made and what are the resulting limitations? Which methodical and methodological perspectives result from this for future research? The Section for Sociological Methods and Research designs of the ÖGS invites sociologists and social researchers from neighboring disciplines (communication science, political science, educational science, etc.) from 3 to 4 November 2022 to a hybrid conference with online participation options at the Johannes Kepler University Linz. Submission of abstracts is possible until July 31, 2022 and you can find more information here.
In August there will be no newsletter.
