Thematic analysis and co-(?)researching: seeking a balance.

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


This presentation will focus upon my experiences encountered whilst implementing a thematic analysis approach for my PhD study. Braun and Clarke’s (2006) six-phases provided structure and informed the process. Questions and challenges that I had faced along the way will be presented, including those linked to elements of my co-research design that were unfulfilled during the analysis stage. I will also discuss the aspects that I perceived as being messy (but liberatingly creative), my conflicting thoughts about manual versus computer-based coding, and to what extent I felt that my dualistic positioning as an insider / outsider impacted upon my analysis.
