Inside Interviewing New Lenses, New Concerns



Inside Interviewing New Lenses, New Concerns by James A. Holstein, Jaber F. Gubrium

Inside Interviewing highlights the fluctuating and diverse moral worlds put into place during interview research when gender, race, culture, the age of respondents and other subject positions are brought narratively to the foreground. It explores the 'facts', thoughts, feelings and perspectives of respondents and how this impacts on the research process. It will provide readers with insights to selecting the appropriate analytic strategy for explicating data that emerges from related activities in the interview process.


The editors
introduction is excellent, providing a brief history of interiewing as a research technique and highlighting many of the issues that concern today

's research interviewers...Inside Interviewing would be valuable for doctoral-level research methods classes, as well as for practicing researchers. It is an excellent starting point for examining specific issues, such as reflexivity. -- Heidi Juilien * Library and Information Science Research, An International Journal *'
