Description

Synopsis

As IPA researchers, what do we mean when we say our research is interpretative and phenomenological? Likewise, how do we achieve these aims? In my talk, I will offer a personal reflection of how I have grappled (and continue to do so!) with these questions as well as drawing on concrete examples from my own process. Over the years, I have learned that being-interpretative and – phenomenological is more about assuming a particular stance and orientation than it is following a procedure and methods and it is this I hope to explicate. Some of the things we might discuss include taking up a personal position with respect to our reading of phenomenological philosophy and hermeneutic theory; clarifying the ways in which we attend to both the surface texture of a lived experience and what is implied and implicit within it; how phenomenological ideas and concepts can deepen our interpretations. There are many more issues and I hope to use my talk as a starting point to discuss other ones that we are all grappling with.

Speaker

Dr Virginia Eatough is a Reader in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Birkbeck University of London. She is interested in emotional phenomena broadly speaking – feelings, moods, emotions – believing that they are all ways in which we orient ourselves towards the world and others. Also, she is interested in the relationship between emotion and cognition and, more recently, neurophenomenology.
