Can anybody help?
I am looking for a verb that follows "military regime". Can I say "happened", "occurred", or is it something else?

Thank you!

I don't think that you'll have any problems with your degree being from a TEI, as long as you have good grades (usually 2:1, which is around 6 in the Greek grading system).
I reckon you won't yave any problems with your references, also.

PS I am also Greek

Quote From DrJeckyll:
I come from the science, and I think that your sample is too small. This limits the generalisability of your findings.
Consult with a statistician early when planning out the fieldwork. In order to control for other factors, you need more schools ( level2 units), which might be more important than number of students (level 1 units).

Good luck


In qualitative study you don't have to make generalisations. You can study X at a certain area and in a ceratin time period (i.e. when the research takes place).
e.g. how do girls aged 10-12 that live on a road full of foreigners perceive 'race'...... Or something like that

I think that firstly you have to see where you will find participants. I mean, it's obviously OK with children who are in schools, but what about the never-schooled ones?

Then, if I were you I would look at other studies on similar subjects and see their methodology. I know there are plenty of studies from alla around the world, so, it won't be that difficult.

After that, you will form your own research methodology.

I don't think that anybody can advise you to choose this or that methodology. After all, it is your research and you are the only one who knows exactly what you want to study

I used a lot "it seems that", "data shows that", "the participants appear to construct this in this way" etc.

It depends on the theoretical framework that you are using

Ooh..Congratulations Emmaki!! :-) I'm sure that was such a great feeling! How's going now? Did your supervisors say till when would they send you feedback??

Still working on my analyses, I thought of getting material for 2 chapters (and papers) out of them, but now it seems I'll have to divide in 3 chapters...which is good and bad, since it means more work to do in the same (small) amount of time!

How's everyone doing? Are there other printed draft ready to be sent to your sups??

Wish you all a productive day!


Hey!
Thank you!!!!!!
It is a great feeling to have a finished 'product' in your hands, even if it still not a final draft.......
I will have feedback by the end of March, which gives me plenty of time to rest, and i sure need a goos rest!!!!!!!!!!!

Well done on having so much material that you can get three chapters and papers! It is more work, but it is rewarding.

Keep up the good work everyone

I studied pre-primary education. In order to get my degree I had to attend and take exams on 48 modules (pedagogics to history of art and from psychology to management), plus some seminars and labs that I had to attend, without sitting on exams.

I don't feel that it was a waste of time. learned about so many different fields and saw that teaching in a classroom was not my only option.
So now, almost 13 years after graduating, I work in an area of education that I would have never thought of had I not attended a relevant course and I have two Masters in different fields and I am finishing my PhD in an other field that I also met in my undergrad years......

Hey all.
Just an update......
I have to handle in a full draftby the end of the month. I have decnt drafts of all my chapters, but they still need work (especially my third analysis chapter).
I have planned to do a chapter each day and i hope i will do it. I mean i hope that i will have the physical strength to do it, because i work ft at a job completely different from my research, a job that also needs studying and researching.

Today imanaged to finish the firstanalysis chapter.

So, i'm off for today

Good luck to all

To tell you the truth, if it was my research, i would interview boys as well inorder to see what they think about it. Maybe not as many as the girls, but i believe that they could give some intersting insights.

As far as the researcher is concerned, i think that as long as you ackowledge the issues that you will potentialy face bc you are male and African-Amertican, you won't have any otner issues. The children will open up.

Finally, in qulitative studies data isx alwasys biased. You cannot explain something without being influenced by your own experiences and perceptions. This you also have toacknowledge in your methodology

Quote From blue_heaven:
Hi, I am very new in this forum. I am just trying to post my small inquiry about my research interest. I am on early stage of my research project. I am male sociology researcher but I am particularly interested to study gender studies and racial studies.
My study attempt explores the role of school education system in the social reproduction of racial and gender inequality. It analyses the effects which pedagogical practices, textbooks and curriculum contents adopted by schools have on promoting the specific social inequality of race and gender.
Now, I am seeking your opinion on methodology. I am interested to do multiple methods of data collection, such as key informant interviews, participation observations, field notes, and focus group discussions. Now my questions are-
1. Do I need to do interview only girls ( African -American) from school to get information?
2. Who could be participants during the focus group discussions? for example- parents, teachers
3. I myself belongs to African-American, Do I need to hire some female (non- african american) interviewer to get actual information. I would be my positionality?
I hope you guys have ideas regarding on methodology.

Thanks

1.it depends on what your research questionsare. If you want to explore girls' perceptions then you will interview only girls. However if youwant to compare and contrast constructions, then you will interview both boysand girls.
2.Againi think it depends onyour study and on ethics eg inmy country in order to do research in schjools you have to obtain a special permission from the ministry of education, but you need permission from theparents only if you require medical information. Keep kn mind that if there are other people present, then your partcipants may not feel free to expresstheir views.....
3.Again it depends. You can do theresearch yourself and acknowledge any issues like your gender and race in your methodology and explain how they may have affected the data.... Hiring afemale, caucasian todo the study, mayalso affect the research (what about male, non-caucasianparticipants?)

Hey all!!

I'm hoping I will submit in 2014, too!!!

I'm part time, self funded, work full time, based in another country, studying in the UK and my native language is not English.

Finishing line or (as I prefer to call it) light at the end of the tunnel seems close.

I have to submit a first full draft of the thesis by the end of February. I have drafts of all chapters and I just need to pull them together and make a text that flows.

Fingers crossed its should not t ake me more that 10 days and then, after taking a few days off, I can re-read the whole thing and then send it to sups.....
