This workshop will present a qualitative approach to the analysis of interview data, based on discourse analysis and narrative analysis in social psychology. Further details of the approach and an example from my work on single women's narratives of relationships can be found at the link below. The workshop will include discussion of issues around research interviewing and some practice analysis of transcript extracts.
Jill Reynolds is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Health & Social Care at The Open University. Her research interests and publications include education, training and practice issues, identity, feminist practice, inter-professional work and meanings of mental health care and support. Her book The Single Woman: a Discursive Investigation (Routledge, 2008) provides a new understanding of what is often taken for granted – female single identity. She has used the same data (first analysed for her PhD thesis) of interviews with 30 single women in their middle years for several journal articles, some co-authored, on narratives of singleness.
