The Centre for Independent Social Research and Laboratorium: Russian Review of Social Research announce an international conference in May 25–27, 2012, Saint Petersburg
We invite social researchers with experience in conducting empirical comparative, multidisciplinary, and multi-sited projects either individually or as part of a team. By exploring and contrasting specific case studies, we intend to discuss the benefits and limits of complexly designed studies. We plan to devote special attention to issues and strategies involved in comparing research outcomes across sites, 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 November 15, 2011.
Session organizers should send their CV, proposed session title and a short description of the session (500 words maximum), together with a list of intended participants who have agreed to take part in the conference, directly to the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to welcoming you to Saint Petersburg!
