Structured Analytics

  • Analyzing Representations of "Local Knowledge" in Tech Development

    This analytic set of questions was developed by Angela Okune (UC Irvine Anthropology) and Leah Horgan (UC Irvine Informatics) to query a range of multimedia artifacts related to technology development in the "global South".

  • Anthro Data Questions

    A set of questions for the chapter in the Anthro Data volume. These will primarily be geared towards analyzing our experiences at the RDA. 

  • Archive Ethnography Collaboration Biography

    Questions to jumpstart collaboration around archive ethnography. 

  • Archive Ethnography: Conceptualization

    Questions to prompt articulation of ever-growing, constantly shape-shifting ethnographic archives. Questions ask for descriptions of  the context, purpose, directions and risks of the archive. There are also questions asking for a description of actual or possible collections within the archive, and for a draft description of an exhibit that would walk a visitor through the archive, with a supporting narrative. 

  • Archive Ethnography: Ethics and Governance

    Questions to prompt description of an explanatory introductions, ethics statements and governance plans for your ethnographic archive. 

  • Archive Ethnography: Leveraging PECE

    Questions to prompt description and reflection on ways to leverage PECE in ethnographic archives.  

  • Archive Ethnography: Technics

    Questions to draw out explanatory introductiona, ethics statements, and governance plans for your ethnographic archives. 

  • Decolonizing the University

    This analytic seeks to understand how scholars have understood the relevance of scholarly knowledge to “undeveloped,” vulnerable communities and how this has been shaped, delimited, critiqued and transfigured over time, especially by leaders and scholars in Africa during the shift from colonial rule to postcolonial independence.

  • PECE Concepts

    This PECE Analytic supports collaborative articulation of concepts that shape and emerge from PECE work. Annotations can draw from PECE writings, from other literature, or from ethnographic experience and observation. All annotations produced through this Analytic will support PECE design and development (expressed in substantive and design logics) and further PECE writing, including the PECE Keywords book. Annotations produced can be linked to in addressing the question about concepts in the PECE Analytic, "Questioning PECE Writing." 

  • PECE Field Notes

    This question set will provide space to share field notes on work within PECE (conceived as a field site). 

  • PECE for Pedagogy

    These questions are aimed at annotating syllabi and other pedagogic tools that utilize PECE.

  • PECE in Theory

    Question set supporting the work on the  PECE in Theory subgroup of the PECE Design Group. 

  • PECE Instructions Feedback

    This question set is intented to provide PECE users with the opportunity to comment on PECE instructions and request new PECE tutorials.

  • PECE Peer Review

    These questions help sketch out collaboration bios for PECE peer reviewers.

  • Querying Analyses of Collaboration and Approaches to Data

    UPDATED for second-order querying of analysts' understandings of collaborative formations. Developed collaboratively by Kim Fortun, James Adams, and Angela Okune on a Zoom call on July 26, 2018.

  • Questioning PECE Writing

    This question set will help us re-read writing of our own about PECE, drawing out what has been articulated (perhaps for the  first time), how the piece can be cited, and what it suggests for further PECE analysis, writing  and development. 

  • Reading PECE Platforms|Projects

    This analytic was developed to guide critical readings of PECE platforms and projects by their designers then by external reviewers.  The latter are asked to do an "elaborative review."  Annotations should be titled to show both the position and name of the reviewer.  PD can can be used to indicate that a reviewer is in the platform or project design group. ExR can be used to indicate an external reviewer.  Like this: PD AKenner: title.  Or: ExR KFortun: title.  Annotations can be attached to the image artifact that ports to the platform or project here: 

  • Reading Qual Data Repository Platforms

    This analytic set of questions are adapted from an original set of questions developed by the PECE Design Group (led by K. Forun) to enable collaborative evaluation of diverse digital platforms, aiming to understand how different digital platforms work, enacting particular language ideologies and assumptions about the dynamics of knowledge production and communication. The goal with this set of questions is to enhance capacity to make sense of digital infrastructure as textual and cultural as well as technical forms. For her PhD dissertation project, Okune has adapted the original set of questions to query digital platforms in use by research groups around the globe that work with and manage qualitative data. She will use these analytics to query the guidelines developed for use of the platforms. These analytics will form the basis of landscape analysis of the approaches and tools in use towards managing qualitative data and help to provide a broader context for the specific data sharing instance that is being attempted in Nairobi.
