July 2016 heralded the 7th ESRC Research Methods Festival here in the UK. This time, we met in the beautiful historical city of Bath for an event full of seminars, activities and lively discussions about established and new methods used in social science research. Festival themes included: International knowledge exchange; cohort and longitudinal methods; analysis of complex data sets; the pedagogy of methods learning; careers and skills development. For those who were unable to attend, or want to revisit sessions, the full listings of keynotes, speakers and recorded workshops are now available on the NCRM site. All videos from the Festival are now also available for exploration on NCRM’s YouTube Channel (subscription recommended!).
