Research Program

Research Methodology

The methodology reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the program. The program opts for case-studies, to be approached primarily with qualitative methods (esp. in-depth interviews, life histories, participant observation), though not excluding the use of surveys, e.g. as a way to find informants for qualitative research. Church leaders, converts and members will be asked about their position on culture politics and recruitment strategies. Archives and internal publications of churches will be studied. The specific characteristics of the cases to be studied will demand innovative tailor-made methods.
