There are three subareas in this series: Quantitative Research, Measurement, and Qualitative Research. This volume fits in the Qualitative Research group and addresses issues surrounding oral history - how to both fully and succinctly report and present this material, as well as the challenges of evaluating it.

Meaningful Research, Aging, And Positive Transformation, Carolyn Ellis, L Richardson, M Gergen, K Gergen, N Denzin, A Bochner

Qualitative researchers are increasingly being called upon to become human rights advocates, to help individuals and communities honor the sanctity of life, and to promote the core values of privacy, justice, freedom, peace, and human dignity. In this volume of plenary papers from the Fifth International of Qualitative Inquiry in 2009, leading qualitative researchers show the various dimensions of the human rights work being done by scholar/activists in the social sciences, education, health care, social services, cultural studies, and other fields.

Talking And Thinking About Qualitative Research, Carolyn Ellis, Arthur Bochner, Norman Denzin, Yvonna Lincoln, Janice Morse, Ronald Pelias, Laurel Richardson

Carolyn Ellis

This script comes from an edited transcript of a session titled “Talking and Thinking About Qualitative Research,” which was part of the 2006 International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry, held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on May 4-6, 2006. This special session featured scholars informally responding to questions about their personal history with qualitative methods, epiphanies that attracted them to qualitative work or changed their perspectives within the qualitative tradition, ethical crises, exemplary qualitative studies, the current state of qualitative methods, and challenges and goals for the next decade. Panelists included Arthur Bochner (communication), Norman Denzin (sociology/communication/critical ...


Talking And Thinking About Qualitative Research, Carolyn Ellis, A Bochner, N Denzin, Y Lincoln, J Morse, R Pelias, L Richardson Dec 2006

Talking And Thinking About Qualitative Research, Carolyn Ellis, A Bochner, N Denzin, Y Lincoln, J Morse, R Pelias, L Richardson

Carolyn Ellis

Ethics has been a perennial concern of qualitative researchers. The subject has been confounded with the emergence of human subjects regulations, the increased concern with indigenous communities, the globalization of research practices, and the breakdown of barriers between researcher and subject. The original contributions to this volume highlight the key topics that face contemporary qualitative researchers and those that will likely emerge in the near future. Written by many of the leading figures in the field—Lincoln, Denzin, Schwandt, Richardson, Ellis, Bochner, Morse, among others—this book will help shape the ethical response of the field to the challenges presented ...


Their Story/My Story/Our Story: Including The Researcher's Experience In Interview Research, Carolyn Ellis, L Berger Dec 2001

Their Story/My Story/Our Story: Including The Researcher's Experience In Interview Research, Carolyn Ellis, L Berger

Carolyn Ellis

Interviewing has become the window on the world of experience for both researchers and professionals. But as familiar as interviewing is now, its seemingly straightforward methodology raises more questions than ever. What is the interviewer’s image of those who are being interviewed? Who is the interviewer in the eyes of the respondent? From where do interviewers obtain questions and respondents get the answers that they communicate in interviews? How do the institutional auspices of interviewing shape interview data? Drawing upon leading experts from a wide range of disciplines to address these and related questions, The Handbook of Interviewing offers ...

Sociological Introspection And Emotional Experience, Carolyn Ellis Dec 1990

Sociological Introspection And Emotional Experience, Carolyn Ellis

Carolyn Ellis

Although social constructionists now study emotions, they neglect what emotion feels like and how it is experienced. This paper argues that social constructionists can and should study how private and social experience are fused in felt emotions. Resurrecting introspection (conscious awareness of awareness or self-examination) as a systematic sociological technique will allow social constructionists to examine emotion as a product of the individual processing of meaning as well as socially shared cognitions. Examining introspection as a sociological process, this paper argues that introspection can generate interpretive materials from self and others useful for understanding the lived experience of emotions. Findings ...


Turn-Ons For Money: Interactional Strategies Of The Table Dancer, Carolyn Ellis, Carol Ronai Dec 1988

Turn-Ons For Money: Interactional Strategies Of The Table Dancer, Carolyn Ellis, Carol Ronai

Carolyn Ellis

Using participant observation, retrospective and interactive introspection, and interviews, we describe interactional strategies used by erotic dancers to sell “table dances.” In contrast to past studies, we concentrate on the dynamic, processual nature of the exchange from the point of view of dancers and the dancer as researcher. Instead of emphasizing the deviant aspects of this interaction, we view it as representing a microcosm of strategies used to gain and maintain control in “respectable” exchanges, such as those employed by women in negotiating gender relationships and by sellers in buyer-dominated service occupations.


Jealousy And The Social Psychology Of Emotional Experience, Carolyn Ellis, Eugene Weinstein Dec 1985

Jealousy And The Social Psychology Of Emotional Experience, Carolyn Ellis, Eugene Weinstein

Carolyn Ellis

Jealousy is investigated as a focus for the symbolic interactionist analysis of emotion. We define jealousy in terms of the features of the contexts in which it is evoked. Three related elements are essential: an attachment between two persons; valued resources that flow through and are controlled by that attachment; and intrusion on that attachment by a third person who is perceived by one partner as becoming or wanting to become the receiver or giver of those resources. This partner becomes jealous because of fear of loss of control over the resources that pass through the bond between the two ...
