Ethnography and models

Hi all,

I am in the final year of a PhD using ethnographic methods to explore the culture of a support service for sex workers. The key themes from my analysis seem to fit together as a model of how experience is conceptualised/framed within the service.

My question is, does anybody know of other ethnographic studies that have created models from their data? Understandably my supervisors are a bit nervous about me creating a model for a qualitative study, with models being largely fixed and more fitting with quant work.

If anyone knows of any such ethnographic work, or even just qual work with a critical realist underpinning, which has produced a model of some sort, I'd really appreciate you pointing me in its direction.

Many thanks,

Well, I have seen another person develop a model from her qualitative nursing dissertation which was based on grounded theory. She was also to publish an article from the dissertation but I guess she is yet to publish it.
