Doing qualitative research on inequalities during the Covid-19 pandemic
Earlier this year, a group of academics in Sociological Studies made a call for resources on the topic of doing qualitative research which addresses inequalities during Covid-19. The aim was to gather resources about doing qualitative research in socially distant times with a particular focus on resources relating to inequalities research, covering, for example, researching with marginalised, minoritised or hard-to-reach groups and communities, or facilitating qualitative research with diverse groups (including diversity in groups).
Many of us are currently facing challenges as we seek to carry out qualitative research which addresses inequalities under socially distanced conditions. Lots of people are thinking creatively about how to overcome these challenges.

Helen added: "The directory lists resources that have been shared with us and that we have found. There are many more general resources than resources relating to inequalities research, but we hope that these general resources are nonetheless helpful to people researching inequalities.
"We would like to thank everyone who suggested resources and welcome further recommendations, as we will be updating this resource for the remainder of 2020."
The University’s four flagship institutes bring together our key strengths to tackle global issues, turning interdisciplinary and translational research into real-world solutions.
