About this product
- DescriptionDemonstrates the importance of talk in a variety of social research methodologies. This book focuses systematically on how sociological methods are essentially conducted through forms of spoken interaction, and how these interactions shape the results that emerge in research.
- Author BiographyGeoffrey Raymond is an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His research interests include conversation analysis, the role of talk-in-interaction in the organization of institutions, and qualitative research methods. His research has appeared in the American Sociological Review, Social Psychology Quarterly, and Language in Society, among other places. He is co-editor, with Paul Drew and Darin Weinberg of Talk and Interaction in Social Research Methods. Born in 1963, Darin Weinberg received a B.A. in sociology and communications from the University of California, San Diego in 1984; an M.Sc. in social philosophy from the London School of Economics in 1985, and Ph.D. in sociology from U.C.L.A. in 1998. After teaching for three years at the University of Florida, he joined the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences (now PPSIS) as a University Lecturer in 2000. He held a Lindesmith Fellowship for Drug Policy Studies, from the Lindesmith Center of the Open Society Institute in 2000-2001. He has been a fellow of King's college since 2001, and Senior University Lecturer in the Department of Sociology since 2006. In 2011 Darin won the Melvin Pollner Prize in Ethnomethodology from the American Sociological Association's Section on Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis and the Outstanding Article Award from the Social Problems Theory Division of the Society for the Study of Social Problems. Darin's research focuses primarily on the practical purposes to which concepts of addiction, mental illness, and learning disability are applied in various historical and contemporary contexts. He is particularly interested in how these concepts figure in state sponsored campaigns of social welfare and social control, and in what their uses reveal about how and why people distinguish the social and natural forces held to govern human behaviour. Beyond these specific research interests, Darin is also more broadly interested in social theory, the sociology of science, sociology of health and illness, and qualitative research methodologies.
