Analysis, on the one hand, is a process of clarifying the meanings, the nature, the functions of the key 'phenomena' or 'objects' of study. On the other, it involves a process of breaking down what was complex into something that is considered 'simpler', more 'primordial' or 'essential'. Analytic categories are thus the result of decisions made about how to cut up the world or worlds, to make it amenable for science as a structure of knowledge. Ethnographic writing then seeks to represent the realities of a given way of seeing the world to enable outsiders to see that world by setting out its categories, its analytic practices to produce the lived meanings of public story-ings of selves and others. An analytics involves a public story-ing. It is a work of identity and identifying, of composing a representable reality that can be made accountable, recountable and actionable.
