Qualitative Inquiry

Abstract

This issue is premised on the belief that a thorough understanding of the 21st century social and cultural milieu necessitates scholarly inquiry that prioritizes depth, nuance, and context. Each of these attributes, we believe, is exemplified by the life history method. In gathering these articles together, we hope to spark greater interest in life history and a reassessment of its import as a methodology that can produce valuable knowledge on a broad array of social science topics. Through such a discussion, it is also our goal that the articles in this issue will shed light on current and future research trends while highlighting novel life history projects that can stimulate further dialogue about the future of qualitative inquiry.
