This dataset is designed for teaching students interested in the embodied nature of experiences and memories how to use digital reflective journals to enhance data analysis. The dataset is provided by Dr Angela Mazzetti of Newcastle University, UK, and is drawn from her research in Northern Ireland, which explored the enduring emotional legacy of the Northern Ireland conflict, euphemistically referred to as ‘The Troubles’. The research conducted in Northern Ireland between July 2016 and December 2018, explored the ways in which individuals who grew up during the Troubles, remember and frame their past experiences, and the extent to which these past experiences have had an enduring impact over the life course. Throughout her fieldwork, Dr Mazzetti engaged in digital reflective journaling using her mobile phone to record her personal reflections of her research. This dataset focuses on how the researcher used these digital reflections to enhance her analysis of embodied placemaking in a postconflict context. The dataset files are accompanied by a teaching guide and a student guide.
