Qualitative Researchers—Stories Told, Stories Shared: The Storied Nature of Qualitative Research. An Introduction to the Special Issue: FQS Interviews I

César A. Cisneros Puebla, Robert B. Faux, Günter Mey


We present our rationale for this special interview issue. The interview as experienced in everyday life is contrasted with the interview as a critical research tool in qualitative research. In using the qualitative interview ourselves we learn about the professional and intellectual develop­ment of those who helped to create the found­a­tions of qualitative research. We learn about qual­it­at­ive research as a specific field of instruction, as method and theory, as writing, and practice. A discussion of the various types of interviews in­cluded in this issue is followed by a discussion of how technological advances will provide us with considerably more interview options in the future.
