In the context of iMean5 conferencce in UWE, Bristol (6-8th of April 2017) 8 MITN members presented their projects, while the 'Identity and Workplace Communication' MITN cluster members held a panel on 'Exploring multidisciplinarity in workplace studies'.

  • Working with interviews: discourse analysis & coding

The workshop will cover an overview of the questions you need to be aware of when analysing interviews (such as issues related to transcription, types of analysis) and will present coding (including types of software, bottom-up and top-down approaches, grounded theory) as a tool to be used in combination with any chosen method. In the hands-on section of the workshop participants will work in groups on a supplied fragment of interview data, trying to apply coding methods and develop a possible approach to analysis.
