Subject: BRCSS Access Grid Methodology Seminar Series, Semester 2 2006
Dear Social Science Colleagues,
We are very pleased to introduce you to a BRCSS initiative for semester
2 2006. *BRCSS Access Grid Methodology Seminar Series*
The seminars and the Access Grid are part of the developments initiated
by the BRCSS (Building Research Capability in Social Sciences) Network
which is funded by TEC to support and foster social science research in
New Zealand. Many of you will be aware of BRCSS and its aims, and some
will be involved in BRCSS research programmes or may have already
participated in BRCSS activities. This is an exciting initiative and
an opportunity to build linkages with colleagues working in other
institutions and to learn more about their work and about the broader
picture of social science research in New Zealand.
At present four seminars are scheduled with a focus on research
13th September - Charles Waldegrave and Bob Stephens - Measuring Poverty
27th September - Jenny Neale - Ethics and Standards for Evaluation
11th October - Amanda Wolf - Introduction to Q Methodology
8th November - Robin Peace and Mathea Roorda - A Sizing Tool for
A poster is attached for each event.
Discussion amongst the nodes is an integral part of each seminar and is
likely to generate some lively debate.
We would be most appreciative if you would circulate information
relating to the series to academic staff and post-graduate students. Up
to date information on the physical location of each Access Grid Node
at the New Zealand universities will be available shortly at
