Timescapes: An ESRC Qualitative Longitudinal Initiative

Timescapes Secondary Analysis Project

The Secondary Analysis Project was designed to explore the scope for working within, and across, the data sets produced by the seven Timescapes projects, and to develop linked methodological, as well as substantive, insights. We also undertook to explore possibilities for building links with other extant, quantitative, data sets.  The Timescapes primary research projects were independently conceived, designed and run by different research teams, although they had a range of overlapping interests, both substantive and methodological.

Working across these data sets, the Secondary Analysis Project ran through the final two years of Timescapes funding. It was managed and run by Sarah Irwin. Mandy Winterton, the project Research Fellow, was in post from April 2010 to Sept 2011. Outputs include peer reviewed journal articles, and four Timescapes Working Papers based on the work (please see links below). The project also made a core contribution to the Timescapes Secondary Analysis Training and Capacity Building programme run, through a series of workshops, in 2011 (for details see below).
