Biographical methods

By Joanna Bornat

Abstract

The chapter reviews three different approaches to biographical methods, the biographical interpretive method, oral history and narrative analysis. Each is outlined in turn, looking at distinguishing characteristics. Each makes use of the interview to generate data and while each has unique strengths, the chapter concludes with a commitment to an oral history approach with its focus on the dynamics of the interview
