Who or what is QuaText?
QuaText — Institut für qualitative Sozialforschung was founded in 1982 as a registered association — “eingetragener Verein” (e.V.) — in Berlin. Its work is recognized to be conducive to the common good and the public interest.
The goal of the institute is to advance and foster qualitative methods in the social sciences and the humanities.
Members of QuaText are by majority sociologists who are or were researching and teaching full-time at universities. They work in a multidisciplinary way and have long lasting experience in qualitative research.
We provide advice for research projects and individual scientists who collect and analyze qualitative data.
We regularly offer courses on interpretative methods of data collection and methods of text analysis. Our main foci are methods of biographical research and issues of Oral History, while the courses are primarily designed for the acquisition and consolidation of practical research skills. We emphasize the incorporation of the particpants‘ own empirical projects into the courses and the methodological monitoring and aid of these projects are in the center of our attention.
