PhD Workshop: Approaches to Qualitative Analysis with Professor Ann Cunliffe

This workshop, for PhD students and staff, is hosted by the newly formed Organisation Studies (OS) Cluster at Sheffield University Management School.

In this workshop we will explore different ways of analyzing qualitative ‘data’. We will begin by discussing how our ontological and epistemological positioning influences data analysis and interpretation. We will then explore narrative, phenomenological, discursive and other forms of qualitative analysis. Participants are asked to come to the workshop prepared to discuss in small groups any ideas, questions, and/or examples of data analysis from their own work.


Ann is currently Professor of Organization Studies at FGV-EAESP, Brazil, having previously held positions at the Universities of Bradford, Leeds and Hull, UK, the University of New Mexico and California State University, USA. She also holds Visiting Professor positions at and the Catholic University of Milan, Italy, Aalborg University, Denmark, and the University of Bath, UK.

Her current research interests examine ethical leadership, embodied sensemaking, non-traditional qualitative research methods, and reflexive approaches to research and practice. Recent publications include the SAGE Handbook of Qualitative Business and Management Research Methods (co-editor, 2018), A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book about Management (2014) and articles in Organizational Research Methods, Organization Studies, and the British Journal of Management. She is currently Associate Editor at the British Journal of Management and was Co Editor-in-Chief of Management Learning (2009-2016). Ann organizes the biennial Qualitative Research in Management and Organization Conference in New Mexico, USA.
