I-Poems as a method of qualitative interview data analysis: young people’s sense of self: Dataset
I-poems are one of a range of possible ways of analysing in-depth qualitative interview data. The particular focus is on identifying how interviewees talk about themselves (their first person ‘voices’) and interpreting their sense/s of self or subjectivities. This exemplar of the I-poem form of analysis demonstrates the steps involved, and reflects on the implications of a process that aims to trace how participants represent themselves in interviews. The material used is provided by Professor Rosalind Edwards and Dr Susie Weller from the University of Southampton, and is taken from their qualitative longitudinal research study: Your Space, which focuses on the dynamics of young people’s sibling and friendship relationships over time. The exemplar data consists of an audio recording and transcript of an interview with ‘Jasmin’ (a pseudonym), one of the young people participating in the research study, undertaken specifically for data analysis demonstration purposes, and an I-poem produced from analysis of the transcript annotated to identify the ‘voices’ in which she speaks. This exemplar will show you how to construct an I-poem and use it to identify and trace continuities and changes in research participants’ sense/s of self within an interview.

Abstract

I-poems are one of a range of possible ways of analysing in-depth qualitative interview data. The particular focus is on identifying how interviewees talk about themselves (their first person ‘voices’) and interpreting their sense/s of self or subjectivities. This exemplar of the I-poem form of analysis demonstrates the steps involved, and reflects on the implications of a process that aims to trace how participants represent themselves in interviews. The material used is provided by Professor Rosalind Edwards and Dr Susie Weller from the University of Southampton, and is taken from their qualitative longitudinal research study: Your Space, which focuses on the dynamics of young people’s sibling and friendship relationships over time. The exemplar data consists of an audio recording and transcript of an interview with ‘Jasmin’ (a pseudonym), one of the young people participating in the research study, undertaken specifically for data analysis demonstration purposes, and an I-poem produced from analysis of the transcript annotated to identify the ‘voices’ in which she speaks. This exemplar will show you how to construct an I-poem and use it to identify and trace continuities and changes in research participants’ sense/s of self within an interview.
