Graduate students are introduced to rhythmanalysis, an increasingly attractive method for capturing multiple factors, historical and contemporary, simultaneously occurring, and constantly shifting, and recognize how these factors are altered by interacting. The goal of the workshop is for participants to apply rhythmanalysis with confidence in their own research design.

Dr. Marina Karides is Professor of Geography and Environment at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa who has taught multiple graduate qualitative methods. Her recent book, Sappho’s Legacy: Convivial Economics on a Greek Isle, (SUNY 2021) applies rhythmanalysis. She is committed to learning from works in indigenous and black geographies, and is usually engaged in intersectional feminist and social justice projects, globally and/or locally in theory and praxis.

Eligibility and capacity

We will select up to 20 graduate students to participate in this workshop. Selection will be based on your AAG membership status, your research needs, and time of registration. If you are selected, we will notify you ahead of the workshop and provide you all the workshop details and session links. If you are selected, the expectation is that you will participate in all sessions of the workshop.


Selected participants should be human geography focused with an interest in qualitative research methods. This workshop is ideal for graduate students who are considering methodologies for data they are about to collect or data they have collected. If not, students should have familiarity and access to qualitative research data on a particular topic and region to work with, for example, from a previous course or grant. The workshop will also be attractive for those interested in conceptual issues related to space and society.
