Brown Bag Seminar: Q Methodology

  • VICESSE 4 Paulanergasse Wien, Wien, 1040 Austria (map)
 

The basics of Q methodology

Q methodology is an interpretive methodology combining quantitative and qualitative methods to study subjective viewpoints. It can be used to identify and understand shared viewpoints on a given topic and has been used across many disciplines including political science, medicine and nursing, education and psychology. In this seminar Lucy will introduce the basics of Q and its applications, and will lead us through the process of conducting a Q study together, using her most recent study on the ethics of eating meat as an example.

Lucy J Parry is currently working at Participedia as a research assistant with the Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance at the University of Canberra and as a tutor at Webster Vienna Private University. She completed her PhD in Politics at the University of Sheffield in 2017 and now lives in Vienna.

Brown Bag seminars: challenging the discourse on security studies

Security is more than borders, police and crime. It is the issues that affect us most in our daily life: our relationships, our jobs, our rent.

With the aim to deepen our understanding of security and contemporary security solutions, VICESSE invites professionals from diverse fields to Brown Bag seminars: a meeting which combines discussion and food. Rather than creating an event for a great number of participants, these lunches should enable professionals to exchange their knowledge and experience in a small setting. We want to create a space in which researchers, practitioners and experts alike can engage in critical discussion about how security can be brought back into society.

The expression “brown bag lunch” derives from Anglo-Saxon tradition. The name originates from the custom that participants provide their own lunches which were originally packed in brown bags.
