Hermeneutic Phenomenology (HP) is a qualitative research method that seeks to uncover the meaning in people’s lived experiences through personal stories and reflections.
Sounds simple in a quick summary… but there’s a lot of theory and philosophy behind HP, and a lot to understand in order to conduct HP research responsibly and robustly.
If you’re working with (or considering working with) hermeneutic phenomenology, you may be interested in a free symposium coming up at AUT in July.
The 2022 Hermeneutic Phenomenological Symposium will include (among other things) a series of presentations in which PG students talk about how they’ve used HP in their research. This is a great opportunity to get to grips with HP, and perhaps to assess how you could use it (or refine its use) in your own research.
The event will also launch a new book entitled Hermeneutic Phenomenology in Health and Social Care Research, edited by Professors Susan Crowther and Gill Thomson.
Come along and check it out!
