On 1-3 July 2019, an interdisciplinary workshop in honour of the life and work of the late Professor Eric Dunning has been organised by Jan Davies, Laurie Parsons and Will Davies, all of the University of Leicester. The workshop will run from the 1st–3rd July 2019 and is supported by the University of Leicester and the Norbert Elias Foundation.
The workshop is open to students who wish to do things differently in their research, and who want to deepen their knowledge of Norbert Elias’s sociological practice. The workshop aims to explore the use of different research methods such as visual, auto/biographical, historical/comparative methods and time-series analysis using documents of life, amongst others. As well as lectures and workshops from leadings researchers on these methods and on Elias’ work itself, there will be small group discussions and seminars, a Q&A panel with researchers, poster presentations, and a field work visit to South Wigston – a tour of the ‘Winston Parva’ of The Established and the Outsiders (costs for which are covered).
