NCRM Research Methods Festival 2018 to feature progress on Sensors in social research

The newly announced provisional programme of the eighth biennial Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Research Methods Festival 2018, to be held at Bath University July, will, for the first time, include sessions themed around the National Centre for Research Methods’ (NCRM) Methodological Innovation Strand.

Kicking off the first morning of the three day event (as one of eight scheduled parallel themed discussions) will be presentations and demonstrations of the HomeSense project — to be convened by University of Surrey’s Dr Kristrún Gunnarsdóttir and Professor Nigel Gilbert.

The Sensors in social research session on Tuesday 3 July, at 10:00 to 12:30 will report progress and findings of the HomeSense sensor-based study of social life and potentially sensitive settings.
