Today I met with Professor Taylor to discuss my data analysis section and moving toward editing all of my sections. Professor Taylor suggested focusing on my finding of “empowerment through community building” in my second round of discourse analysis of interviews. I might look back more closely at my data to understand how the women create their collective identity at the sentence level. To do this I will focus on positionally and how they use pronouns like “I” and “we.” In my discussion sections I might also reflect on racial dimensions that reinforce “whiteness.” If I do not include these thoughts in this project I might use them as a point of departure for a future one. My next major challenge is revising my introduction, conclusion, and literature review sections so that they pertain to my current project.
