ESRC NCRM Autumn School 2015 for Early Career Researchers: Radical Interdisciplinarity in the social sciences

The National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM) will be holding the tenth residential training event for early career researchers on 9-11 September 2015 in Edinburgh. The Autumn School is led by Professor Graham Crow.

The NCRM Autumn School programme is designed to cover various aspects of the methodological implications of research and researchers moving across and beyond disciplinary boundaries. Recently there have been interesting and challenging debates about social sciences being ‘shaken up’ in radical ways as ideas and methodological practices cross the boundaries of the social sciences. For example, see Amanda Goodall and Andrew Oswald’s thought-provoking article ‘Do the social sciences need a shake up?

There are 25 fully funded (travel, accommodation) places for early career researchers from across the social sciences, including some from NCRM, some from other academic institutions, and some from other sectors. The audience will be mixed in terms of disciplines, methodological traditions and substantive areas of research.
