  1. Hi everyone
    I am new to this blog and forgive me if this is a much-debated issue, however I am interested in people’s ideas on using computer assisted data analysis within narrative research. I am doing a project (as part of my PhD at Univ NSW in Sydney) involving about 20 participants who have left fundamentalist and evangelical churches – and charting the effects on identity and sense of self. I have a largely Foucauldian theory base, as I am researching the effects of a dispersed system of power on identity. I too have left such a church, and want to do a dialogic-perfomative narr analysis, of how the story is shaped by the audience (myself), as well as a thematic analysis. How do fellow researchers find using software combined with a manual analysis, or do people prefer mostly a manual approach? I am a Mac user, and find nVivo very fraught. Keeps crashing etc. A colleague suggested Hyper Research. Any thoughts? Thanks!
