Overview

"Interpretive Interactionism argues strongly for a new approach to qualitative research methods. Writing primarily for established practitioners and advanced graduate students, Denzin seeks to fuse influences of symbolic interactionist, hermeneutical, feminist, post-modern, and critical-biographical thought into his personal approach to research, which he calls interpretive interactionism. This work cleaves to the forefront of the field through its unapologetic advocacy of the subjective, its emphasis on the biographical, and its appeal for experimentation in new writing conventions. Readers who want acquaintance with current thinking in the field will find it well synthesized in this volume. This is one of the simplest and clearest presentations of his work Denzin has offered in years."
