How can qualitative interviewing enrich the study of social and political processes in area studies? Does the interview constitute a “personal sphere” — a realm of inter-subjective exchanges of perceptions, or is it a source that provides more than just situational information? How should information obtained through interviewing be organized and presented in a dissertation, and what is the analytical value of a “text-bite” in a larger body of text?

With Geir Flikke, Associate Professor, ILOS
