About the Event
The move towards doctoral research that combines Theology and Qualitative Research has grown significantly in recent years. These kinds of projects are genuinely pushing the envelope of research in a variety of ways and the different choices and decisions that are involved are exciting and creative but also complex. Doctoral work that situates itself as both theology and qualitative research crosses previously understood boundaries between disciplines, methodologies, and epistemologies.
This Day Conference, supported by St John’s University NY, is for doctoral advisors/supervisors, doctoral students and those preparing to start doctoral work. It is designed as a conversation to facilitate our learning in this fast-emerging new field of theology.
Those presenting are all contributors to the forthcoming Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Theology and Qualitative Research edited by Pete Ward and Knut Tveitereid.
All presentations will be 15 minutes giving a brief overview of their chapter and reflections on the implication of their work for the wider academy and Church with some thoughts on how their work might feed into the discussion around the design and supervision of doctoral work.
The presentations will be followed by around 45 minutes of discussion on the topic of doctoral work.
