Doing qualitative research on inequalities during Covid

Home > Resources > Doing qualitative research on inequalities during Covid

abstract image

Many of us are currently facing challenges as we seek to carry out qualitative research which addresses inequalities under socially distanced conditions. Lots of people are thinking creatively about how to overcome these challenges, and we’re aware of a number of events, webinars and discussions on this topic that have taken place. 

We sought to gather together resources on this topic (including recordings of webinars, if available). Our aim was to include general resources about doing qualitative research in socially distant times, but we are especially interested in resources relating to inequalities research, covering, for example, researching with marginalised, minoritised or hard-to-reach groups and communities, or facilitating qualitative research with diverse groups (including diversity in groups).

This page lists the resources that have been shared with us and that we have found. Many more fit into the ‘general resources’ category than the ‘resources relating to inequalities research’ category. We hope that these general resources are nonetheless helpful to people researching inequalities. We welcome further information about resources and will update this page for the remainder of 2020.

We did this work with the Digital Society Network at the University of Sheffield. Hannah Ditchfield and Elisa Serafinelli did the hard work of generating keywords.

We have organised resources according to topics and themes. Some resources appear in more than one category.
