Methods of the social sciences and humanities are increasingly expected to help solve the grand challenges of our time. At the same time, the social sciences are increasingly becoming a research object within STS research. In this PhD course, we will both analyze methods as empirical objects and discuss the methods we ourselves deploy in our research. The lecturers will discuss their own methods, including analysis of digital sources, interviews, and documents.
