Sapienza University of Rome, 14-15 September 2023, Rome – Italy

Organized by the European Sociological Association’s research networks, Qualitative Methods (RN20) & Quantitative Methods (RN21), in collaboration with Visual & Digital Cultures Research Center (ViDi – University of Antwerp) and promoted by Methodology Section of the Italian Association of Sociology (AIS-MET).

In current years, several factors are contributing to general profound alterations of individual and collective living: the emergency situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic joined by other critical issues, such as Russian-Ukrainian war, energy crisis, economic and political instability are undermining the certainties of people and institutions. Inhabiting uncertainty has become today’s human condition.

No field of life is excluded from uncertainty: health, work, free time, communication, and the emotional/affective sphere have been affected. Even science faces uncertainty. On the one hand, the epistemic authority of scientists is questioned, on the other, current changes require new analytical tools.

This also concerns social research methods. Approaching the instability of today’s living conditions means facing a vast range of methodological challenges: the ever-increasing use of apps and internet-based tools and services in research, the continuing ‘crisis of the interview society’, as well as the use of images and big data require the ability to deal with uncertainties and an increasingly close dialogue among different methodological approaches and tools.

The Forum’s aim is to foster an effective methodological dialogue to navigate through uncertainty and provide young and emerging scholars with the intellectual opportunity to discuss their methodological approach.
