"To exist, humanly, is to name the world, to change it. Once named, the world reappears to the namers as a problem and requires of them a new naming."
Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Paulo Freire
Summary: a two-part project
My first extended experience with qualitative research occurred during my sophomore year of college when I participated in a semester-long think tank on stress culture at Carnegie Mellon under the direction of Dr. Linda Flower. I worked with a group of five conducting informal and critical incident interviews, round-table discussions, and independent synthesis. I was personally responsible for an analysis surrounding way-finding and recalibration of personal identity as a way to alleviate stress. For more on this, see my discussion (pages 32-33) of our findings report.
