Operationalizing a QLR Project on Social Change and Whiteness in South Africa, 1770s-1970s
Stanley, Liz
International Journal of Social Research Methodology, v18 n3 p251-265 2015
The Whites Writing Whiteness project is concerned with changes to the racial order in South Africa over a long time-period and connects 'big numbers' and work on very large archive collections with close textual analysis of particular documents. It uses longitudinal data within a Qualitative Longitudinal Research methodological approach, combining formal analysis with a sampling process. In operationalizing this, letters from the Findlay Family collection with thousands of documents, a group of around 190 letters by Elizabeth Price, and a small set of Gottlob Schreiner's letters, are discussed. In doing so, useful conceptual and methodological tools for analysing other large longitudinal datasets are provided.
