mixed methods, grounded theory, concept analysis, suffering, comforting, trans­cultural analysis


In this interview, MORSE traces her development as a qualitative researcher from the early stage of her quantitative Master's thesis. Her interest in mixed methods is longstanding. Formed through her background in anthropology, MORSE appears as an icon when she talks about ana­lyz­ing behavior—this work resembles that of GOFF­MAN. She is very serious and critical when think­ing about the future of mixed-methods. Her ap­proach to think about theoretical cohesion and theoretical drive can be very attractive to re­searchers involv­ed in this kind of work. Also her vision of mixed methods can be polemical. She describes her work on suffering and comfort, and the methodo­logical impact of her work on concept analysis. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0403331
