A talk and workshop on Timescapes - a qualitative longitudinal study

17 Nov 2011

On Tuesday 29 November 2011 (12.30–4pm) in Room G030/031, Arthur Lewis Building.

Timescapes is an ESRC-funded qualitative longitudinal study which explores how personal and family relationships develop and change over time. Its focus is on relationships with significant others: parents, grandparents, siblings, children, partners, friends and lovers, using the method of 'walking alongside' people to document their changing relationships.

In depth interviews, oral narratives, photographs and other visual documents are being collected for the Timescapes archive. The archive offers exciting possibilities for re-using data for research through time and across the generations.
