Time and place: Jan. 17, 2019 9:00 AM12:00 PM, Meeting room, 12th floor, Niels Treschows hus

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?

The 2015–2016 phenomenon labeled the “migrant crisis” and the “refugee crisis” generated intense discussions in the public spheres of various European societies, as well as in their private spheres. An important part of these discussions was identity negotiations: who are “we” and who are “they”? What do we want our societies and public spaces to be like? What are our values? Migration has caused visible changes in public spaces, and in the ways that receiving and transit countries see themselves, their past and future, and neighboring countries.
