Mastering the Semi-Structured Interview and Beyond offers an in-depth and captivating step-by-step guide to the use of semi-structured interviews in qualitative research. By tracing the life of an actual research project–an exploration of a school district's effort over 40 years to address racial equality–as a consistent example threaded across the volume, Anne Galletta shows in concrete terms how readers can approach the planning and execution of their own new research endeavor, and illuminates unexpected real-life challenges they may confront and how to address them. The volume offers a close look at the inductive nature of qualitative research, the use of researcher reflexivity, and the systematic and iterative steps involved in data collection, analysis, and interpretation. It offers guidance on how to develop an interview protocol, including the arrangement of questions and ways to evoke analytically rich data. Particularly useful for those who may be familiar with qualitative research but have not yet conducted a qualitative study, Mastering the Semi-Structured Interview and Beyond will serve both undergraduate and graduate students as well as more advanced scholars seeking to incorporate this key methodological approach into their repertoire. Anne Galletta is Associate Professor at the College of Education and Human Services at Cleveland State University. William E. Cross, Jr. is the author of Shades of Black: Diversity in African-American Identity. In the Qualitative Studies in Psychology series

‘Organizational research methods’ (ORM) are making an ontological turn by studying the nature of Being, becoming, and the meaning of existence in the world. For example, without ontology, there is no ‘ground’ and no ‘theory’ in Grounded Theory (GT). This book explores ten ways to develop fourth wave GT that is grounded and theory. 1st wave GT commits inductive fallacy inference, 2nd wave GT bandaids it with positivistic content coding. 3rd wave GT turns to social constructivism, but this leaves out the materiality and ecology of existence. The first three waves do not address falsification or verification. There is another theme. Qualitative research methods is a discipline craft, not mere science or something that automated text analysis software can displace. Quantiative narrative analysis (QDA) is one more way to colonize and marginalize indigenous ways of knowing (IWOK). Without an ontological turn, its the death of storytelling predicted by Walter Benjamin and Gertrude Stein predicted. The good news is Western Empirical Science is beginning to listen to IWOK-Native Science experiential living story method of relations not only to other humans but to other animals, plants, to living air, water, and earth in living ecosystem of an enchanted world There is a gap in the qualitative research methodology practices and comprehensive advanced approaches causing a split between practice and theory. So called Grounded Theory (inductive positivism) . Organizational Research: Storytelling in Action is about how to conduct ten kinds of ontological Research Methods and conduct their interpretative analyses, for organization studies, in an ethically answerable way. It is aimed at people who want a more ‘advanced’ treatment than available in so-called Grounded Theory or automated narrative analysis books.

This journalism master's project includes a professional work component and a research component. The professional work component details the author's experiences working as a photojournalist rephotographing some of John Collier's work and exploring the Navajo culture in northwestern New Mexico. Includes field notes and examples of work. In the research component the author examines Navajo viewers' perspectives of John Collier, Jr. as well as his work about the Navajo community. The author conducted semi-structured interviews with seven Navajo viewers of Collier's work. The author concludes that "in giving voice to the community Collier documented, it's become clear that regardless of where a photographer falls on the insider-outsider spectrum, the resulting work may be considered valuable by the subjects." (p. 59) Includes a literature review and interview transcripts.

This volume aims to look both at as well as beyond the ‘Delhi Gang Rape’ through the lens of Indian Media Studies. The editors consider it a critical event, or rather critical media event that needs to be contextualized within a rapidly changing, diversifying and globalizing Indian society which is as much confronted with new ruptures, asymmetries and inequalities as it may still be shaped by the old-established structures of a patriarchal social order. But the volume also looks beyond the ‘Delhi Gang Rape’ and introduces other related thematic areas of an emerging research field which links Youth, Media and Gender Studies.
