Exploring Methods for Exploring Identity: Biographical Narrative and Phenomenological Research
The Qualitative Report Second Annual Conference
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA
Department of Conflict Resolution Studies
2011-01-07 to 2011-01-08
Exploring identity through qualitative inquiry offers researchers many investigative options, each serving different research objectives and yielding different outcomes. Attend this interactive workshop and discover how biographical narrative research and phenomenology provide two distinctly different paths for researchers exploring identity. You will practice life story and phenomenological interviewing, develop a chronology from a biographical narrative transcript, 12 and perform a bracketing exercise to gain "epoché." Uncover your own sense of identity as a researcher as you thoughtfully approach uncovering the worldviews of others.
