Beginning analysisFlashes of insightthe interplay between a receptive and curious mind and a world explored over time and with diligenceAsking the participantsKeep the key question in sight

SORTING AND ANALYSIS: making some sense of it allShuffling data from chronological order into themes, categories, areasSorting = dividing, moving classifying Can be done by hand or computerComputers can help you sort but not analyse the dataDocuments, tapes, diaries, memory etc. are unlikely to be computerised

SortingData can be assigned to categories but should also remain within the rest of the data. Be fully inclusive but not mutually exclusiveCategorise to meet your own demands – and be prepared to change – institutions, people, themes, groups, concepts all count as categories or classificationsData can be coded within the whole text or can be split up – but avoid divorcing from context.Use databases, physical segmentation, or bothBeware reification

AnalysisHypothesis formulation, theory construction, coding, interpretation, (even data collection) are inextricably bound up with one anotherAnalysis begins ‘in the field’Coding begins as you write field notesIndexing and card files (or databases) are useful supplementary tools – in the field as well as laterBear in mind the needs/demands of analysis as you record – take photos, film, audio tapes, in directed ways, and to enable you to sort and contextualise

WRITING UPFROM WHAT YOU ‘KNOW’ TO WHAT YOU COMMUNICATEDo not attempt to communicate everythingGo back to the beginning

DescriptionThe first step may be to describe#p#分页标题#e#HistoryBackground\settingSome facts and figures(from general gathering)Some findings

Conceptsfind concepts which help you make sense of what is going onSometimes the analytical concepts will arise from the field Sometimes you need to develop whole new concepts

Theoriesexplain, or offer abstract propositions about, an entire society or limited aspects of social life Theories are adopted and adaptedThey summarise and make sense of disparate observations

Don’t get it right get it written!
