This webinar focuses attention on one of the most complex issues in qualitative research: analyzing data collected in one language, in this case Spanish, for publication in a second language, in this case English.
Building on their chapter in Charles Vanover, Paul Mihas, and Johnny Saldaña’s book, Analyzing and Interpreting Qualitative Research: After the Interview, Elsa M. Gonzalez and Yvonna S. Lincoln provide a set of how-to’s for engaging data with a cross-cultural and cross-language origin. There is no formula to translate culture, but the authors help us understand how to unpack the complexities of this important form of inquiry.
