Abstract

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.
