Crang, M. (2003) ‘Qualitative methods: Touchy, Feely, look-see?’, Progress in Human Geography, 27(4): 494–504.
This article is useful because it points readers to various articles and books devoted to qualitative methods in geography. It also discusses researcher positionality, and performative approaches, both highly relevant when thinking about semi-structured interviews and focus groups.
Davies, G. and Dwyer, C. (2007) ‘Qualitative methods: Are you enchanted or are you alienated?’, Progress in Human Geography, 31(2): 257–66.
This article argues that methods such as semi-structured interviews and focus groups remain ‘the backbone of qualitative methods in human geography’ but there are transformations occurring in the way they are being used to construct and convey knowledge. Issues of agency, embodiment and emotion, being in nature, and the performativity of place are discussed.
