Inductive Content Analysis (thematic analysis)


This is the page with the firsthand accounts from witnesses of the Rwandan genocide. You should choose a small sample of the transcripts to conduct your own inductive content analysis, following the stages from the grounded theory handout. Read a few extracts first and decide what you research question will be about. Then start the process in earnest. You could present this as a poster and we have some rigid card you could use as your back-board. You must ensure that your poster includes your research question, the sampling method used to achieve your sample, the step by step procedure used to analyse the data, your findings (including memos, codes, fragments of speech as examples, categories, core categories and a diagram to show how the categories link to each other).
