New methods book underway!

by on October 14, 2019

Katrina and Rebecca are delighted to announce that work on a new methods book is well underway.  The book – Collecting Qualitative Data using Digital Methods – is part of the SAGE series “Mastering Business Research Methods“, edited by Bill Lee, Mark NK Saunders and VK Narayanan.

Aimed at taught postgraduate students completing a Master’s dissertation, this series offers a detailed look at a particular method to support students in their research journey.

Our book focuses specifically on the way in which students can engage with digital methods to collect qualitative data.  Many of you will be familiar with the term ‘big data’, in which large scale quantitative methods are used to map internet phenomena.  In contrast, the approaches we cover in this book focus on the ways these maps are navigated in relation to specific management and business issues.  Our own research on age at work uses these approaches, for example in our papers on generational identity (in Organization Studies), images of gendered ageing (in Gender, Work and Organization) and understanding retirement (in Journal of Management Inquiry).

We will provide further updates on our blog as the book is produced and then published.
