Need help with my Sociology question – I’m studying for my class.
This week you read two articles that highlight the difference between different the types of qualitative research (observations vs. interviews). Compare and contrast the Goffman and Marvasti articles. How are the two articles similar and different in terms of their purpose, methods, and contributions? In your response, spend time unpacking their different methodological choices. What do you think are the strengths and limitations of using interviews versus ethnographic observations? Further comment on the usefulness of this kind of research to contribute to knowledge and social justice.
Your post should be roughly 300-400 words. To receive full credit, write a post that integrates examples (i.e. direct quotes, data, stories, etc.) from the reading with: 1) your life and personal observations, 2) current events, OR 3) existing scholarship.
