We are pleased to announce that registrations are now open for the Timescapes 10 Festival, a major celebration of progress and advance in qualitative longitudinal methods.

Jointly run through the Timescapes Archive and the National Centre for Research Methods, the Timescapes 10 Festival celebrates ten years since the conclusion of the original Timescapes Programme of research.  

A key aim of Timescapes was to facilitate advances in Qualitative Longitudinal (QL) research, archiving and the re-use of QL data. Through a mixture of international symposia, panel sessions, video provocations, sandpits, and demonstrator events, this online only festival showcases the huge amount of progress in these methodological fields, as well as international advances in: 

  • Qualitative Longitudinal research 
  • Qualitative Secondary Analysis 
  • Qualitative archiving 
  • Decolonising Archives 
  • Qualitative data in panel surveys 
  • Auto/biographical methods 
  • Big Qual 
  • Mixed Methods 
  • Ethics 
  • Data Integrity and Data Management
