- introduce Mass Observation to an audience that didn’t know much about this great source of qualitative data
- provide some information on why we have been undertaking the Defining Mass Observation Project
- provide some simple findings from the project, on ‘Who are the Mass Observation writers?’
Do take a look at the presentation in the link above, if you are interested.
Taking part in the RMF was a really positive experience. The audience were really friendly and interested in the presentation. Everyone attending seemed to get a real buzz out of thinking about methods, and how and why we use certain methods and data sources. And I was able to attend some really interesting and exciting presentations. My particular high point was a session on ‘Paradata’ which had some strong cross-overs with the Defining Mass Observation project.
