interpretation, representation and transformation
How do researchers undertake the challenge of analysing and interpreting data from participatory studies, and particularly from those that are based on in-depth, individualised approaches? How can personal and political transformations be effected through the use of participatory research? And how can greater clarity and rigour be introduced in research studies that use and promote participatory methods? These are some of the key questions addressed in this chapter. Using the specific narrative example from the participatory narrative study described and presented in Chapter Four, this chapter also demonstrates some of the ways in which different kinds of narrative analyses may be conducted (both from a participant and third-party perspective). It also shows how participant representation and transformation can be achieved through greater emphasis on collaboration and emancipation throughout the various phases of participatory research.
