Project title: Welfare Narratives In United States Political Rhetoric: Stories, Power, and Contestation in Central Appalachia
Mentor: Laura Roselle
The focus of this semester was completing my fieldwork and developing my research design for the second phase of my work: a content analysis of media sources. I conducting interviews many public officials in Alamance County and Durham County, and had the chance to discuss my research with former NC governor, Bev Perdue. The bulk of my work was focused on constructing the content analysis research design, which I hope to complete this summer. In order to do the content analysis of media sources, I had to learn how to use QDA Miner, qualitative data analysis software. Lastly, I wrote a detailed outline of my final paper, which I will start writing this summer. My paper will be broken into five parts: an introduction; three sections on the formation, dissemination, and reception of welfare narratives; and a conclusion.
