It’s very important we meet the deadline.
Some of the files are not loading on the website, so I will email email it to support – and there will forwarded to you
Please do contact them if you are selected- and ask for the attachments as they give you more insight as to how the report needs to be carried out
Here is everything you need to know about the Qualitative report due in week 17
Detailed instructions: the Qualitative Practical (due in week 14 – 19th February 2021) – check this on evision nearer the date.
1. The topic to be investigated is ‘People’s views on / experiences of getting to know people of other races and how this influences their perceptions of individuals and groups. *
You should devise an ethically sound research question in your first workshop.
2. In the first QL workshop on 03.12.20, you will form pairs**. The only restriction on this is that you must both join the same workshop group on Collaborate. This is so that you can work together in the workshops. There are two workshop sessions running at the same time and you need to choose either Group A or Group B. You will be devising a research question, aims, and interview questions, working as a pair (decide on your pairs ahead of the workshop). Before you can collect your data, you must get your topic and interview questions approved by your group tutor. Marks equivalent to one grade will be deducted if you do not do this.
Next, in your own time, you will interview each other using the prepared questions. Each interview should take between 20 and 30 minutes. You can do this using Skype, Zoom, or whatever medium works well for you both.
Note that the lecture covering Interviews and Interviewing takes place the week after the first workshop. You will be able to refine your interviews questions after that lecture and before you carry out your interviews.
** If any student is unable to join a pair for any reason, please email Amanda Visick and alternative arrangements can be discussed.
3. Each member of the pair will transcribe her/his interview recording and share the transcription with the other member of the pair. You will then each have 2 interview transcripts to work with.
4. Using Thematic Analysis (Braun & Clarke, 2006), you will identify themes in your transcripts. There will be guidance on this process in the workshops, so you will need to transcribe your interview recording ahead of the relevant workshop. The analysis will be completed by students working individually.
5. Finally, you will write up your Practical report using appropriate headings (writing up will be covered in a lecture well in advance). The report must be within the word count of a minimum 2000 words and maximum 2500 words (this does not include the Reference list or the Appendix). The report MUST include an Appendix containing both transcripts with only your own transcript marked up to show the process of analysis. The Appendix must also include the interview questions and a template – not signed to protect anonymity – of the consent/brief form and the debrief form. Marks will be deducted for failure to include any of these documents in the Appendix.
* Because issues involving ‘race’ can be sensitive, it is vital that you devise sensitively worded interview questions. That said, issues around ‘race’ have always been important and that is particularly evident in the current climate of BLM and October’s Black History Month.
A bonus is that you have the added advantage this year of being able to use some of the same texts, notably articles addressing the Own-Race Bias in Face Recognition (ORB) for your Qualitative and Quantitative Practical reports. Dr. Parveen Bhatarah will tell you more about this at a later date.
SC – Investigator SC – Participant
SC: Hello, my name is (SB) and I am just going to ask you six questions based on my research question which is does positive exposure to different races eliminate racial prejudice, is that ok with you?
SC: Yeah, sure
1, SB – What were your parents/carers views on different races?
SC – Well, I am from quite a mixed background, my Nan who I lived with and grew up with, she is mixed race she is half Indian half white and her views where she was bullied for being mixed race because white people said she didn’t belong to their race and Indian said that she didn’t belong to the race so she fell that races shouldn’t mix.
Because she was so bullied for its growing up, she has now evolved from that, but she experienced so much childhood trauma from the fact that she was mixed race, so that was her views, but she has evolved from that she does now, she does share the fact that everyone is equal, it does not really matter being Mix race now
2, SB- What interaction did you have with different races in your upbringing?
SC – Ok, so I briefly mentioned that I had a mixed family so my Nan she is mixed-race, and she has 11 brothers and sisters all from different races. I grew up in Hackney was very multi-cultural area my school was very multicultural and also, I attended extracurricular activities dance troops and a lot of the time. I was the only white girl in which was absolutely fine. I did not feel uncomfortable. I felt quite natural to me. I was very immersed in different cultures to be fair
3) SB – Can you tell me about a time where you have personally experienced racial prejudice or have witnessed it?
SC – Yeah, so when I was at secondary school. We used to have/ you know when you have relationships at school, but they’re not seriously just say your boyfriend and girlfriend there was a boy who is the black and his mum found out that he likes me, but she told him that he couldn’t be with me because I was white- the time it was quite hard, but I didn’t fully understand it. I was only a child
4) SB – What were your thoughts/ reaction / feelings to the experience?
SC – Well, as I got a child hormonal, I was quite devastated. I did not completely understand why that was the reaction I felt a bit hard done by now. I am older I sort of understand. Why that is the views of some people, you know you do not really know what their background. As to why they think that way- especially with the example of my Nan, now that I am a lot older, I can read the reason why that was the case but at the time I was absolutely devastated, I did not really understand
5) SB – Have you experienced a situation where own race bias has occurred, can you tell me about it?
SC – I’ve not personally experienced own race bias however, I have witnessed it in terms of documentaries and from word-of-mouth, so I do know that a white woman was in the court as identifying – a criminal and there was a line-up of five black men, and she pointed to one of them and it was not him at all. So, the fact that she could not distinguish between who actually commit the crime and the men front of her.
So, I have witnessed it-but I haven’t personally experienced it, nor have I gone through it neither have I gone for it, I do realise that it is mostly common in white people mistaken the other race, I haven’t seen it as often as another rate mistaken white person- I have noticed that I don’t know why that is, but I have seen that.
6) SB – Would you choose or do you have a role model from a different racial background?
I do have a role model from a different racial background her name is Dr Mae jemison. She was an engineer position and the first African American astronaut that went into space. I will resonate with her quite a lot because she loves reading and she dance for many years as I used to be a dancer and I have quite high aspirations for myself so to see her has such high aspirations as well and achieve them so dancing astronaut engineer Dr it’s quite inspiring and also, I don’t really see the problem with having a role model from a different race is just as inspiring as you know, my own race and sometime even more inspiring.
Especially the time that she was around, she was around in the 1970s in America, from education I realise that that was quite a tough time – it was a time when people were segregated, when they couldn’t use the same facilities, but she still defied the awards and still became this amazing person, so yes she is the main role model I have from a different race.
That will be all the questions for now- thank you very much.
SC – Thank you .
SB – Participant SC – Investigator
SC: Hello, my name is (Insert name) and I’m just gonna ask you six questions based on my research question which is does positive exposure to different races eliminate racial prejudice, is that ok with you?
SB: Yeah, sure
SC : Perfect, ok we will start with the first question, so what were your parents slash carers views on different races?
SB: Well, my mother in particular, uh and I am originally from Africa, uh, originally from Ghana, my mother in particular always had uh, view of white people, I think because of the colonial time, so she always had the views that white people were, uhh, sort of, best at everything they do is good and we, you know, she liked white people a lot, so I grew up thinking of, uh, white people as, you know, being the best in everything they do really
SC : Ah, cool, ok so the second question, what interaction did you have with different races in your upbringing?
SB: OK, so when I was growing up, I was working at a restaurant and um, this is in Ghana, and there was a lot of foreigners who used to come there, tourists and things like that, so there was quite a lot of interaction with different people from all around the world
SC: Ah, amazing
SC: So, the third question is can you tell me about a time when you have experienced prejudice, if not, have you witnessed it?
SB: yes, so, um, a few years ago, I was going out with my girlfriend who was white and uh we had a slight matter so we decided to go see a counsellor and it just so happened that the counsellor has taking her side and advised her to do some things against me, without my knowledge, it was later that my girlfriend said to me that you know, your biggest mistake was taking me there because this is what he said to me about you, so that’s the time I had experienced a thing like that
SC: Ah, that sounds terrible
SC: So what was your reaction to, to that situation?
SB: I was shocked, I was shocked, I was shocked, because you know, the relationship went bad and um we had to split and it cost me, uh, emotional disturbance, I suffered from depression due to that and things like that, so it was later when my girlfriend said this is actually what happened
SC : yeah
SB: That’s when I knew, so all this happened to me, only because someone took my girlfriend side because he felt connected with her, being white
SC: Oh, I see
SB: and I’m being black
SC: Was the counsellor white?
SB: Yes, yes
SC: Oh, I see, ok
SB: Yeah, so you can imagine the difficulty so he was, after that, after going through all this and my girlfriend was telling me this is why all this things happened because of what he told her
SC: Oh yeah, that sounds bad
SB: So it was, yeah, terrible
SC: Ok, so the next question is have you experienced a situation where own race bias has occurred and can you tell me about it?
SB: Ummm, own race bias, yes, I think so because sometimes , uh like for instance with my friends we when were talking about um, other races, we sort of quickly jump into conclusions, not knowing who that person is, there was a time where, this woman that I used to watch on television and she was always particular when it came to black issues and I thought that, that woman was racist or something like that until we realised that she was actually married to a black man, that is why she cared a lot about the black community and we didn’t know this, I didn’t know this and I always have this thought about her until I find out that actually she was married to a black man which is why her point of view were always strict when it comes to black people to make sure that they better themselves
SC: Ah, interesting
SC: Ok, so the next one we have is would you choose to have a role model from a different racial background or do you already have one
SB: I do have a role model and my role model surprisingly is Mr Tony Blair
SB: Who’s the former prime minister for the labour party
SC: That’s very interesting
SB: Yes, I adore him most greatly, I think his intellect is broad, he’s modern and also civilised, that’s two different things, it is very rare to see people who possesses the two, uhh, I mean educated and civilised because educated people are smart they can tell you oh this happened in 1980, this happened in that and uh, civilised people are quick to understand why people do things , they don’t judge quickly, they understand it before they share their point of view on that particular matter and I think Mr Tony Blair possesses the two, educated and civilised, that is why he’s my role model
SC: Ah, that’s a very interesting role model
SC: Thank you (laughs a little) thank you for answering the questions, I’m gonna end the interview here, thank you for your time
