Last week I attended the first Methods School organized by the Spanish Political Communication Association (ACOP). It took place from Oct.24 to Oct.27 in Calatayud, Zaragoza (Spain). Several researchers from prestigious Spanish universities such as Universidad de Salamanca or Universidad Complutense de Madrid offered 4-hour workshops on the theory and practice of the primary methods they employ in their scholarly practice:
Francisco Seoane Pérez – In-depth interviews
Juan José Igartua – Experimental designs
María Luisa Humanes – Survey research and public opinion polls
Miguel Vicente Mariño – Audience studies
Lidia Valera Ordaz – Content analysis and framing
Carlos Arcila Calderón – Big data and predictive sentiment analysis
Amazing experience where I had the opportunity to discuss my dissertation project with outstanding peers and scholars! Looking forward to the next one!
