Skills-sharing workshops

In addition the conference will host a series of workshops allowing medical anthropologists to share skills and exchange experiences with mixed methods studies, participatory video methods, the use of spatial methods and social media, network analysis, and the analysis of large volumes of qualitative data.

A total of ten workshops will be given in the methods track of this conference. The workshops will cover both qualitative and quantitative methods as well as mixed methods approaches. They will represent the very best methodologies available to medical anthropologists today; innovative methodological approaches will be highlighted.

Several of the social scientists involved in these workshops have participated in the NSF Short Courses on Research Methods classes both as instructors and as participants. European and other non-US scholars will be invited to co-chair the workshops with their US counterparts.

The workshops will be uploaded on the conference website for reference to researchers who cannot attend them.
