'Identities: Theoretical and Methodological Journeys' featuring Professor Valerie Walkerdine

Starts: 10 April 2008

A one day conference for all social science researchers investigating identities (featuring Professor Valerie Walkerdine, SOCSI)

11.00 – 5.00, Thursday April 10, 2008

Loughborough University - The Stewart Mason Building

You are invited to attend a one day conference on theoretical and methodological innovations in identities research organised by the ESRC Identities and Social Action Programme, Social Sciences at Loughborough University and the National Centre for Research Methods. 

  • How can the territory between the psychological and the social be investigated and what does new thinking about relational subjectivity offer?
  • What methodological strategies are available for investigating identity performances in naturally occurring everyday contexts?
  • How can research reach generalisable conclusions and capture the richness of individual stories?

Leading researchers will be presenting papers and discussing in lively interactive sessions how they conceptualise, investigate and analyse identities and social action, describing and evaluating the latest theoretical and methodological perspectives.
