In this workshop, we aim to (a) present practical examples of how researchers address struggles associated with combining manual and computational approaches to theory building, (b) help authors who are facing those struggles, (c) discuss how this novel type of work can be reviewed, and (d) provide a forum to discuss the next steps in developing this new methodological stream.
For those who are interested, there will be roundtables with the panelists at the end of the workshop: Participants who would like to receive feedback on their ongoing or planned projects can submit a short vignette until July 25 (approx. 1-2 pages as PDF to email@example.com) highlighting how they combined computational and manual analysis techniques in their research, and what struggles they faced in understanding, using, or considering using computational methods in their theory development work. Those who have not conducted any such research, but are planning to do so, can submit short descriptions of their intended work, also focusing on their planned combination of manual and computational techniques or related questions.
Please note that submission of vignettes is not mandatory for participation in the workshop.
Please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) should you have any questions.
Content: There will be presentations by experienced scholars. For those who submit vignettes, these will be discussed in round tables with commentators at the end of the workshop.
Time & Date: 10:00 PM - 12:30 AM CEST on Sunday, 7 August
Format: The workshop will be hybrid interactive: Seattle + virtual. On-site participation is encouraged.
