We invite social researchers with the experience of empirical comparative, multidisciplinary, multi-sited projects conducted either individually, or in teams. Through exploring specific studies as examples, we would like to discuss the benefits and limitations of the studies of complex design. We plan to devote special attention to the issues and strategies involved in comparing research outcomes, the reflections of participants in collective research projects on the organization and execution of fieldwork, data analysis and interpretation, and collaborative work on co-authoring reports, articles, and books.
The working language of the conference is English; the roundtables will be conducted in both Russian and English.
Those interested in participating should fill out the application form, which is accessible on the conference website www.russianfield.info, and submit abstracts of their papers (300 words maximum) by October 1, 2011.
The deadline for proposing organized sessions is September 1, 2011.
