The science and art of interviewing / Kathleen Gerson and Sarah Damaske.

By: Gerson, Kathleen.
Contributor(s): Damaske, Sarah [aut].
Material type: TextTextPublisher: New York : Oxford University Press, 2021Edition: [1st pbk ed.].Description: IX, 280 str. ; 24 cm.ISBN: 9780199324293 (pbk).Subject(s): znanstvena istraživanja - metode | metodologija | metoda intervjua | intervju | kvalitativne metode istraživanja | metode društvenih znanostiSummary: "Qualitative interviewing is one of the most widely used methods in social research, but it is arguably the least well understood. To address that gap, this book offers a theoretically rigorous, empirically rich, and user-friendly set of strategies for conceiving and conducting interview-based research. Much more than a "how to" manual, the book shows why depth interviewing is an indispensable method for discovering and explaining the social world-shedding light on the hidden patterns and dynamics that take place within institutions, social contexts, relationships, and individual experiences. It offers a step-by-step guide through every stage in the research process, from initially formulating a question, to developing arguments, and presenting the results. To do this, the book shows how to develop a research question, decide on and find an appropriate sample, construct an interview guide, conduct probing, theoretically focused interviews, and systematically analyze the complex material that depth interviews provide-all in the service of finding and presenting important new empirical discoveries and theoretical insights. The book also lays out the ever-present, but rarely discussed challenges that interviewers routinely encounter and then presents grounded, thoughtful ways to respond to them. By addressing the most heated debates about the scientific status of qualitative methods, the book demonstrates how depth interviewing makes unique and essential contributions to the research enterprise. With an emphasis on the integral relationship between carefully crafted research and theory building, the book offers a compelling vision for what the "interviewing imagination" can and should be"--
