AbstractIn social science methodology textbooks the research situation is conceptualized as being as neutral and confidential as possible. Only rarely do we find hints on the difficulties to reach this neutrality and confidentiality. In this talk I will focus on the complexity of interviewing processes by drawing on my own research on gender and sexuality from a Foucaultian perspective as well as research of feminist researchers who reflected on issues of gender, sexuality, social class and race as factors that potentially influence interview outcomes, for instance, by creating particular silences. I argue that they need to be perceived as enriching and not disturbing aspects of research and included into our data reconstruction.

Der öffentliche Vortrag in englischer Sprache findet im Rahmen der internationalen Summer School "Globalization and Diversity" statt.
