Grounded Theory Methodologies for Social Justice Projects

This workshop session introduces ways to use grounded theory methods to study social justice issues.

Grounded theory methods consist of flexible guidelines to adopt, alter, and fit particular research problems, not to apply mechanically. With these guidelines, you expedite and systematize your data gathering and analysis. These methods and the area of social justice are treated as serving mutually complementary purposes. Grounded theory methods can assist social justice researchers in making their work more analytic, precise, and compelling. A focus on social justice can help grounded theorists to move their methods into macro analyses. Major grounded theory strategies will be presented with suggestions about how use them to spark fresh ideas about data. Familiarity with grounded theory methods is helpful but is not necessary. The work session covers an overview of basic guidelines and includes several hands-on exercises. If you have collected some qualitative data, bring a completed interview, set of field notes, or document to analyze. If you do not have data yet, we will supply qualitative data for you. If you prefer to use a laptop for writing, bring one, but you can complete the exercises without a computer.
