All welcome

This talk will firstly draw from a recent review of qualitative research on men and depression, focusing on how masculinity is used to inform analyses of men’s’ interview talk. Critiquing the deployment of analyst categories, and the reification of concepts like male and depressed, it is argued that researchers should focus instead on those categories made relevant by men themselves, preferably in naturalistic settings where researchers are absent. To illustrate, data from an online all-male support forum for depression will be presented. Drawing from discursive psychology and membership categorisation analysis, I consider how men themselves do being depressed, and how peer support is negotiated in this environment.

This talk is part of the Qualitative Research Forum - Open meetings series.
