Qualitative Methods Journal Club: middle class alcohol use
The latest qualitative methods journal club (QMJC) is now available online.
The March 2021 meeting discussed the article ‘Habitus of home and traditional drinking: a qualitative analysis of reported middle-class alcohol use’, published in 2014 in Sociology of Health & Illness. The discussion covered Bourdieu’s conceptual framework and the relationships between drinking and identity.
The QMJC involves researchers meeting to discuss a good quality qualitative research paper. Following the meeting, a copy of the paper and a summary of the discussion is made available on the SSA website. This SSA-funded initiative is aimed at increasing knowledge of qualitative research practice. The Journal Club is overseen by Professor Jo Neale from King’s College London, and is hosted by different international academic institutions on a rolling basis.
