JTW-0301: WORKSHOP: Interpreting the Spoken Word: A Division III Seminar

This one-week workshop is for Division III students whose projects involve in-depth interviewing, oral history, or other conversation-based research methodologies. The workshop will center around the interpretation of interview transcripts and will guide students through the iterative process of listening, reading, coding, memo writing, and developing analytic questions and themes. We will take a reflexive, narrative approach to interpreting interviews, recognizing the dialogic and negotiated nature of such inquiry as we create meaning in relation to others.
