Methodological Gravitism
Zaman, Muhammad
Qualitative Report, v16 n6 p1574-1598 Nov 2011
In this paper the author presents the case of the exchange marriage system to delineate a model of methodological gravitism. Such a model is not a deviation from or alteration to the existing qualitative research approaches. I have adopted culturally specific methodology to investigate spouse selection in line with the Grounded Theory Method. This approach, indeed, suggests the unification of methodological individualism, collectivism, and the social positioning of the actor to study the complex and intricately intertwined networks of relatedness. (Contains 1 table, 5 figures and 2 footnotes.)
