Event description

Description

The qualitative interview is a popular method of data collection which tends to be used when the research aim is to have rich detail about the personal experiences, perceptions, feelings and views of the person being interviewed. Qualitative interviewing is often used in studies of people’s life experiences.

In the qualitative interview the process involves building up rapport and a relationship with the participant, conveying trust and warmth so as to encourage the participant to open up and share their private worlds with a stranger. The introduction of an interpreter to the qualitative interview offers an important way for researchers to conduct research with people who they do not share a mutual language with. However research with an interpreter brings another gaze onto the interview process and the data that it yields.

This session will be an interactive workshop where attendees will get the opportunity to use Case Studies to explore some of the opportunities, tensions and difficulties which arise when interviewing with an interpreter present. Participants will develop knowledge and understanding of the role of the interpreter in qualitative interviews and consider the ethical implications involved.
