Young people's interpretations of Dutch soap operas and police series: a multicultural audience research
Unformatted Document Text:  Young people’s interpretations of Dutch soap operas and police series: a multicultural audience research 8 Analysis The 48 interviews will be recorded on tape and afterwards transcribed verbatim. Transcripts will be analysed following the guidelines of the grounded theory approach. In that approach, three coding procedures are applied. Firstly, all the themes that are discussed in the interviews are listed, secondly those themes are categorised in more abstract categories and finally, all categories are linked with one central category (Strauss & Corbin, 1990). The main aim of the analyses will be to find out what meaning soap and polices series talk has for the construction and reconstruction of young people’s identities. A specific focus will be on ethnicity, but other identities such as gender, age and class may show to be important too. In this way, we will gain insight in the question how young people cross cultural borders by talking about Dutch soaps and police series. Results Some of the interviews have already been performed. Preliminary results show that while young people from diverse ethnicities talk a lot about soaps in their daily lives, they only seldomly discuss police series. The decisive factor seems to be that soaps are serials – stories that go on forever – and police series are series – in which one story per episode is dealt with (Fiske, 1987). Serials seem to offer more possibilities for talking in daily life. This might be one of the explanations why so few audience studies into police series have been undertaken.

Analysis
The 48 interviews will be recorded on tape and afterwards transcribed verbatim. Transcripts
will be analysed following the guidelines of the grounded theory approach. In that approach,
three coding procedures are applied. Firstly, all the themes that are discussed in the interviews
are listed, secondly those themes are categorised in more abstract categories and finally, all
categories are linked with one central category (Strauss & Corbin, 1990).
The main aim of the analyses will be to find out what meaning soap and polices series talk has
for the construction and reconstruction of young people’s identities. A specific focus will be
on ethnicity, but other identities such as gender, age and class may show to be important too.
In this way, we will gain insight in the question how young people cross cultural borders by
talking about Dutch soaps and police series.
Results
Some of the interviews have already been performed. Preliminary results show that while
young people from diverse ethnicities talk a lot about soaps in their daily lives, they only
seldomly discuss police series. The decisive factor seems to be that soaps are serials – stories
that go on forever – and police series are series – in which one story per episode is dealt with
(Fiske, 1987). Serials seem to offer more possibilities for talking in daily life. This might be
one of the explanations why so few audience studies into police series have been undertaken.
