Faglig innhold

The course will provide an overview of different epistemological orientations that contextualize and inform approaches in research with children and childhood. The course focuses on how to reflect critically on the relationship between the purpose of a study and the theoretical and the methodological choices that arise in a research process. With a particular emphasis on qualitative methodologies and ethnographic approaches, the course emphasizes that the ways in which children are understood as subjects of research influences the ways researchers plan and carry out research, including formulating research questions, preparing an empirical inquiry, generating data, analyzing and interpreting data, and produce academic texts. The course aims to develop students' reflexivity and qualify them to make informed decisions when undertaking research in childhood studies.
