Into view

Tonight I’ve been reading up on interviews. The commonest method of qualitative data gathering, seemingly.

I’ve done some interviews, but am aware that this is an area where I need to carefully plan. It’s easy to assume interviews are just conversations. I mean ideally they are close to conversations, but there’s got to be an awareness of

power

co-creation

ethical responsibility

meaningful questions.

I’m going to do some pilot interviews, to see that the questions work- and my technique as well. I’ll be doing more reading and discussing the interviews with my supervisors beforehand, and keeping a research diary / analytic memo book during the process. I need to reflect as much on the process as I do on the data, perhaps more so initially.

Right, now to some legal profession history reading. Relentless glamour here in the research cellar 😉
