Young researchers’ working group on joint interpretation

The idea for a working group on inter­pre­ta­tion first came up in 2014 at the annual con­fe­rence of the GPJE in Halle. Back then, the young rese­ar­chers foun­ded their own working group on joint inter­pre­ta­tion, led by David Jahr, Farina Nagel, Ben­ja­min Moritz and Ste­fa­nie Kess­ler. They met on a regu­lar basis in order to jointly inter­pret dif­fe­rent empi­ri­cal data. The group mainly used the docu­men­tary method accord­ing to Ralf Bohnsack.

In July 2020, the tra­di­tion was res­to­red. Since then, there are mon­thly vir­tual mee­tings taking place again, con­ti­nuing the work by jointly inter­pre­ting empi­ri­cal data. Non-vir­tual con­fe­ren­ces are about to take place in the future, too.

Throughout the working group mee­tings, dif­fe­rent qua­li­ta­tive methods are being used. All mem­bers can bring their own empi­ri­cal data, which will be interpreted/reconstructed tog­e­ther, accord­ing to the rules of the respec­tive method.

Inte­res­ted par­ties with and without pre­vious expe­ri­ence are wel­come to par­ti­ci­pate and to bring their own material.
