Please remember that this is practice. It means that I am not expecting perfect work. The point of this assignment is for you to experience transcribing and content analysis of the data. For this assignment, please complete and submit a transcription of your interview and data analysis paper.

  1. Verbatim transcription of your interview
    • Examples of verbatim and an edited transcription will be e-mailed to you soon and posted in the course readings for week 12 as soon as possible.

• For this assignment, you need to do only one verbatim transcription. Please make sure that the interview you decide to transcribe has rich information which will allow you to do data analysis. If you think that transcription of one interview will not provide thick enough data for you to analyze, please conduct a transcription of both interviews.
• Submit the transcript(s).

  1. Coding and categorizing of the data.
    • Please read carefully the article by Braun and Clarke as the authors explain how to code and categorize the data step by step, also please utilize this week’s class discussion.
    • All you are expected to do for this coding is: Code your raw data: developing some manageable coding schemes. Please provide a short example (quotes from the transcription) for the code. Come up with themes from the codes: be mindful of internal homogeneity and external heterogeneity. If it is applicable, please provide which codes are housed under which theme as well as a short example. Some codes may become themes. The instruction above describes two discrete steps, since usually people end up with so many codes and these codes need to be organized into larger themes in order to understand what your data is describing.
    • For the data analysis paper, please write down the process of how went about the analysis, themes you have found from the interview, and codes and quotes to support each theme.

For example
Theme 1: affects that followed experiencing and witnessing of injustice.
The life story interviews show participants’ exploration and expression of long-lasting and haunting effects of injustice.
Codes: I coded various kinds of reactions to the unjust experiences (beyond emotion) under the code ‘affect’ to emphasize and articulate nuanced and complicated reactions and responses to the unjust experiences. Also, affect is framed beyond emotion emphasizing affects that are deeply connected and emerging from an ableistic society.

  1. Emotions
    a. “I strongly felt that the way they (Native Americans) are treated is wrong. I was very disturbed by that, very sad at first, then very angry.”
    b. “It always made me extremely sad to see how my dad treated my mom. He got treated badly by others because of racism and stuff, and, you know, I don’t know why he treated mom so badly. It just saddened me so bad. It still does”
  2. Questions
    a. “why am I the only Black person in the summer camp for disabled kids?”
    b. “I always wondered why there are no other lesbians in the room? It just weird, doesn’t make sense!”
  3. Desires to validate one’s self-worth
    a. “in order to survive having so many oppressive messages kind of written and scribed across our bodies, we either have to kind of cannibalize ourselves, eat and hate ourselves, or we have to resist.”
  4. Yearning for one’s own community and people.
    a. At the time, I was hungry to have some kind of people with disabilities; at sports and summer camp … [Other people with disabilities] thought how other people will judge them, if they hang out with people with disabilities. For me it was opposite. I get so down when I see other Black people with disabilities. When we cross each other, they put their faces down and try not to look at me. They are beaten down so much (by ableism), they even don’t wanna recognize other disabled people (Jeremiah).
