Methods for Cross Cultural Research (Online)

Register here!

This course will be offered via Zoom only and will not be recorded. This is a held on one day.

Methods for Cross-Cultural Research is a 2.5 hour short-course focused on designing and implementing social science research cross-culturally, with a particular emphasis on collecting interview data. In the face of increasing globalization, concerns for external validity, and the importance of capturing the diversity of human experience, there is a need to consider how to implement research cross-culturally.

In this course, participants will consider different definitions of culture, how research is itself a cultural practice, what perspectives and analytical approaches can be employed in cross-cultural research, as well as best practices in designing and implementing cross-cultural research.

Instructor: Allegra Midgette

Allegra J. Midgette, Ph.D., is an incoming (August 2021) Visiting Assistant Professor and ACES Fellow in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Texas A&M University.

Dr. Midgette has collaborated with scholars at the Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo (Brazil), Northeast Normal University (China), Guangdong University of Foreign Studies (China), and Seoul National University of Education (South Korea). Dr. Midgette has conducted studies examining Chinese and South Korean children’s and families’ moral reasoning regarding the fairness of the gendered division of labor, Chinese and American children’s and adolescents’ social and moral transgressions and strategies for self-correction, and Korean adolescents’ reasoning about social conventions.

Dr. Midgette employs a mixed methodology that places the experiential reality of children and their families at the forefront. Dr. Midgette’s program of research includes an emphasis on analyzing and integrating both developmental and cultural processes in understanding social development.
