C‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍onduct a thematic analysis of an audio clip

C‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍onduct a thematic analysis of an audio clip / transcript from an interview held in the Oral History of British Science archive of the British Library. Then, write an empirical report of three themes you have identified in your analysis of the interview in answer to the following research question: Word limit: 2000 words (excluding title, abstract, references and appendices) –

The research question is:

What themes does Frank Land draw on to talk about transitional moments in his life?


– An interview transcript is attached. Using the transcript need to come up with three themes. The report is about Lifespan Development, Transitions, Identity, Ruptures and Fateful Moments in ones life –

Trying to ‘make sense’ of transitions by exploring how the participant has experienced them and whether themes emerge from the transcript in relation to this. Need to use one or two theories to introduce the topic – one being Erikson’s psychosocia‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍l stages and the other could be Vygotsky or Bronfenbrenner’s Model. – So introduction starts with the broad area of lifespan, then moves onto relevant theories, then covers specific resarch on transitions, anding with the rationale and the research question. –

2 Peer reviewed journal articles need to be introduced in the Introduction section (possibly from 2015 onwards) and discussed against the findings in the Discussion section.

The other materials can be any year / study / book. – Sections of the report / Approx. Word count and marks for each section: Title (25 words -2 marks) Abstract (150 words – 8 marks) Introduction (600 words – 15 marks) Methodology: Design, Participant, Materials, Procedures, Ethical considerations and Reflexivity (300 words – 15 marks) Results/Analysis (600 words – 20 marks) Discussion (500 words – 20 marks) References Appendices: Codes and themes 12 Marks for overall – accuracy, brevity, clarity, etc‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍.
