About the Author

Kathryn Roulston is Professor in the Qualitative Research Program in the College of Education at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. Her research interests include qualitative interviewing and analyses of talk-in-interaction. She is author of Reflective Interviewing: A Guide to Theory and Practice (2010) and has contributed chapters to several SAGE handbooks and articles to Qualitative Research, Qualitative Inquiry, International Journal of Qualitative Methods, Qualitative Research Journal, and International Review of Qualitative Research, among others. Her edited book, Interactional Studies of Qualitative Research Interviews (2019), is published by John Benjamins.


What [Roulston] provides is an excellent blend of the theory and practice of interviewing with a careful analysis of the literature on the theoretical aspects of qualitative research, much of which can be off-putting to a new researcher because of its density. This is carefully synthesized with the more practical aspects of interviewing where different scenarios are examined showing there is no 'one size fits all' approach
Management Learning 'You might expect a book on interviewing in qualitative research to focus solely on the procedures of conducting interviews; however [in this book] Roulston offers this perspective and much more. In particular, her new book addresses ways in which the researcher's theoretical perspective can inform not only the interview but also each stage of the research process...This thoughtful approach to research will benefit novice qualitative researcers, helping them to not only learn some of the procedures involved in research but also to bring critical reflection to their research studies
The Weekly Qualitative Report I found the narrative well constructed, which resulted in a comprehensive 'journey' through the different thought processes and practicalities of qualitative interviewing...Every chapter is well referenced, contains helpful case examples of the topic and ends with a useful reading list and an exercise which could be used as easily on oneself as in a lecture hall. The book is rounded off with a list of top tips from experienced researchers and a substantial reading list. Overall I found this comprehensive and accessible
