What Does Rejection Have to Do With It? Toward an Innovative, Kinesthetic Analysis of Qualitative Data

Elizabeth Sharp, Genevieve Durham DeCesaro


Responding to the need for detailed descriptions of analytical practices in transdisciplinary projects and to showcase a way to use qualitative data in secondary analysis, the authors delineate their respective analytic processes. The social scientist used constructivist grounded theory analysis and the dance choreographer used an innovative kinesthetic analysis. In the authors' attempts to integrate their analyses, they discovered a new analytic direction—examination of the "paused" and/or "rejected" data.
