Open House Event: Myths and Urban Legend of Thematic Analysis
JUNE 9, 4:30pm PT, 2021
Presented by Katya Pogrebtsova, PhD.
Thematic analysis is one of the most widely used research methods in the social sciences. Braun and Clarke’s definitive 2006 paper, Using Thematic Analysis in Psychology, has 99,929 citations and counting, making it one of the most cited academic papers of all time. This popularity has contributed to the perception of thematic analysis as both the most widely accepted, and equally, most overrated, qualitative research method to exist. Most recently, Braun and Clarke (2019, 2020) have developed the reflexive thematic analysis approach that encourages expanded opportunities for thematic analysis usage. Much of what was thought as limited or simplistic about thematic analysis (i.e., the “myths and urban legends”) is arguably mere misuse of the method, or no longer applicable when applying the revised reflexive approach. But just how much have these past misconceptions of thematic analysis been impacting your thinking and research decisions? Further, how might you gain new insights into your qualitative research questions with a reflexive thematic analysis approach? The current talk—part discussion of the most prevalent thematic analysis “myths,” part summary of reflexive thematic analysis, and part group reflection—will address these questions. The audience will leave with a greater understanding of how to expand their qualitative research possibilities using one of Psychology’s most acclaimed yet misunderstood methods.

Feminist Positive Organizational Psychology: Respectful Engagement for Building Positive Relational Cultures (Register here)
In this talk, I use a feminist epistemological lens to the study of respectful engagement in lieu of ‘civility’ in the workplace, as the counterpoint of workplace incivility and other organizational deviant behaviors. I build a theoretical framework based upon the positive organizational scholarship (POS) concepts of positive social capital (Bakker & Dutton, 2006), high-quality connections (Dutton & Heaphy, 2003) and the feminist theory of relational work and practice (Fletcher, 1998).
