The Science and Art of Interviewing

Kathleen Gerson and Sarah Damaske

  • Provides a step by step roadmap for conducting interview studies that are theoretically grounded and follow scientific principles based on the logic of inquiry.
  • Addresses the predictable but rarely discussed challenges that confront interviewers as they develop a question, design and carry out the research, and present their findings
  • Includes a set of exercises to help readers put this advice into practice, model questionnaires, interview transcriptions, coding sheets, and other research tools
  • Fills gap in the literature by explaining how depth interviewing provides theoretical and empirical insights than other methods cannot
  • Challenges the view that interviewing is not a useful method for answering the central questions of the day
