Research topic:

The Bahá’í community, multilingual, multicultural, a case study

Core idea:

Analysis of tools used to promote change and move from one social order to another.

Choice of data:

– Selection from the corpus of 23 video recorded interviews of participants at a regional weekend seminar on the theme: non-violent communication within the family. (include a picture with activity)

– Selection from the Ridvan Message 2010, by the Universal House of Justice, highest Bahá’í governing body. (include short passage)

Main focus:

– How members of the Bahá’í community translate the Ridvan Message and incorporate it in their daily practices. (how learning takes place)

Methodology:

Comparison of data found in interviews and text data.

Theoretical framework:

Discourse analysis, (Ridvan Message) activity theory, (explain briefly) cultural psychology (level 4 hypergeneralisation, VALSINER, explain briefly) ethnographic description where the Bahá’í Faith is situated.

Possible outcome:

Strategies used, remaining challenges (elaborate), new findings during analysis

Ps: I’m fully aware that this needs quite a bit of input and help in order for the project to be well grounded. Thank you for any help possible
