Thinking Globally, Interviewing Locally: Using an Intensive Interview Project to Teach Globalization and Social Change
Anderson, Norma J.
Teaching Sociology, v45 n4 p388-398 Oct 2017
In this article, I connect globalization and qualitative methodological practice, describing a semester-long intensive interview project about the anti-apartheid movement. I provide a detailed overview of the project as well as considerations for those who might want to adapt it for their own courses. Using students' reflections on the projects and their final papers, I demonstrate that this project successfully introduces students to a transnational social movement and provides valuable methodological practice.
