Academic Event – Method Café Sessions
Following the best practices from the BSF 2013, this year’s Academic event will be complemented with an additional program for PhD students and other interested researchers entitled the Method Café. Method Café is a new type of conference session led by scholars with expertise in a range of research methods with the idea to engage with other participants in informal and unstructured yet focused discussions about methods they are specialized in. Due to the great interest for this type of session among young researchers and scholars, as well as the great success of the last year’s Method Café, this session will again be an addition to the BSF Academic event. Hosts of the Method Café will be Prof. Dr. Iver Neumann (LSE), who will discuss with the participants about discourse and practice analysis, Dr Hans Mouritzen (DIIS), on the topic of realist methodology in foreign policy studies, and Prof. Dr. Jelena Subotić (Georgia State University), who will talk about doing interviews for academic research. Method Café will be attendant by around 25 researchers and scholars and will take place on the second day of the BSF, October 1, from 14:00 to 18:30.
