Upcoming Events

Gregory Hadley
Sunday, 23 July 2017 - 1:30pm - 3:30pm

Although widely-used throughout the social sciences today, the Grounded Theory methodology (GTM) has been frequently misused by graduate students in Applied Linguistics and related fields, leading some scholars and thesis supervisors to question its suitability. This seminar dispels some common misconceptions about GTM, and explains the procedures, purposes, relative strengths, and unique weaknesses of the methodology. Resources and dispositions vital for successful graduate thesis completion will be discussed. When used in an appropriate and informed manner, GTM can support graduate research, and stimulate new insights related to human discourse and social interaction.

Gregory Hadley is Professor of Applied Linguistics and Western Cultural Studies at Niigata University, Japan. A Visiting Fellow at Kellogg College, University of Oxford, his most recent books are English for Academic Purposes in Neoliberal Universities: A Critical Grounded Theory (Springer, 2015) and Grounded Theory in Applied Linguistics Research: A Practical Guide (Routledge, 2017).
