Abstract

Few introductions to qualitative research cover the use of vignettes for different methods and study designs in qualitative social research, and are aimed at varied groups of readers. One exception is MIKO-SCHEFZIG's "Research with Vignettes," in which she illustrates different facets and potentials for using vignettes in qualitative research. She focuses on concepts of situations and characterizes her research design as participatory and transformative. The strength of the book lies in the exposition of the original research design and empirical findings. General possibilities, challenges, and limits of research with vignettes are discussed, but given that this is an introductory text, they are discussed in a rudimentary manner.
