Participating founders of the AFA, Ernest and Catherine Grant, left a trust to support research in astrology. You are therefore invited to this day-long interactive workshop which will present approaches and guidelines for planning astrological research projects. It will be facilitated by association members Robert Currey, Dr. Benjamin Dykes, Demetra George, and Dr. William Morris. They will provide an initial overview of quantitative and qualitative research models, scholarly, and hybrid approaches to investigate astrological questions. You will receive help in formulating your ideas into a research question and selecting the relevant research methods. Further explorations include: distinguishing exploratory from actual research, literature reviews, research tools, software demos, structure and planning of your project, abstract design, and presentation. Lunch is included with registration fee. Will Morris has 37 years of clinical experience using medical astrology. He will present on politics of evidence, paradigms of inquiry and qualitative methods with attention to ethics and human subjects review. Robert Currey is a consultant astrologer specializing in Astro*Carto*Graphy. He was among the first to program astrological software. In 1989, he started the Astrology Shop in central London – which is still a major center today. Nowadays, his main interest is research and he’s had 5 peer reviewed papers published. He is science editor for the Astrology News Service. Benjamin Dykes is a prolific translator of Latin and Arabic astrological texts, and will discuss topics such as paleography, bibliographies, manuscript transmission, and other issues in understanding the meaning of astrological terms and practices in ancient and medieval cultures. Demetra George has taught the history of ancient astrology at Kepler College and the University of Oregon. She will discuss how to do scholarly research, including the use of primary sources to track the development and transmission of astrological doctrines through various cultural eras.
