The craft behind the interview : students’ representations of qualitative interviews as research method (English)
Abstract [en]

When producing an interview report the researcher is put to the test of describing the qualitative interview method in terms of assumed orderly steps and procedures taken during the interview process, while at the same time account for a very social dynamic process. In practice, even the most carefully prepared scenario for a qualitative interview study probably does not correspond to the expectations made. What happens between the plans and the actual interview itself? This issue is investigated by contrasting the actual engagement of the participants in an interview project to how these relationships are accounted for in Master thesis from the Swedish School of Library- and Information Science in Borås. Theory and methodology from Actor Network Theory (ANT) have been applied into the area of qualitative interviews. Three theses have been analyzed highlighting accounts of the crucial first contact, where the study is presented to the interviewees, and interactions with individual and collective actors. It is suggested that qualitative interview, by nature, is a method that one learns from practice, by experience or by the study of how experienced practitioners work. It is also suggested that students can learn from one another by discussing interview practices in there theses.
