Thematic Analysis Workshop (Online) with Dr Tiziana Callari (registration closed)

Date(s) - 30/05/2024 - 31/05/2024 All Day


Seminar objective

This 2-day seminar will present Thematic Analysis as a family of methods to analyse, and therefore gain a deeper understanding of, complex social phenomena. In addition to being presented the theoretical and methodological foundations of these approaches, participants will have the opportunity to practice using both ‘pen and paper’ and the NVivo tools.


The first session will be dedicated to the Thematic Analysis approaches that are rooted in (post)positivist research and prioritise the establishment of coding and codebook reliability.

In the second session, participants will learn about Braun and Clark’s approach to Thematic Analysis, which operates within the qualitative ‘Critical Realism’ paradigm and emphasises data-driven processes of coding and theme development.

Both sessions will provide the theoretical underpinning, and the methodological guidance for applying the different approaches.

In the afternoon of both sessions, participants will have the opportunity to experience the different Thematic Analysis methods in action through the use of NVivo.

All sessions will feature hands-on practice and a highly interactive format.
