Juliet Corbin: To Learn to Think Conceptually

César A. Cisneros Puebla


Some brilliant images are projected from Juliet CORBIN's memories around her first steps into the qualitative research world related to the symbolic interactionism tradition. She focuses on some remarkable issues about learning the proc­esses of Grounded Theory based on her past experiences teaching in seminars or doing work­shops worldwide. The differences between writing novels and the narrative perspective and writing social science from Grounded Theory methodol­ogy are discussed by her in order to distinguish the role of literature in the production of socially active knowledge. Latin-America and Marxism are especially focused in the discussion around the relevance of activism involved in social trans­formation.
