Quantitative Ethnography Across Domains: Where we are and where we are going
In the last decade, researchers in a variety of domains have used Quantitative Ethnography (QE) in their work. With an initial following in learning sciences and learning analytics, QE is now being used by researchers in fields such as political science, neuroscience, computer human interaction, and anthropology. The main reason for this wide-spread application is because QE leverages the power of human interpretation and computational efficiency such that researchers can create “thick descriptions” of large datasets. In this keynote, I will review how researchers across domains are using QE in different ways, focusing on how QE can be an inclusive research method. After reviewing the current state of the field, I will propose future directions for the QE community.
