Norbert Wiley on ‘Interviewing Herbert Blumer’

Herbert Blumer is one of the founding fathers of Symbolic Interactionism. As we learn from Norbert Wiley’s article in Symbolic Interaction Blumer was hesitant to talk about his private life and personal background. Yet, in this article Norbert Wiley who interviewed Blumer in 1982 to prepare a course he was preparing at the time brings us a little closer to Blumer the person, not without linking the content of the interview to Blumer’s academic contribution. The article “Interviewing Herbert Blumer” that has just been published on Early View of our journal provides background to Blumer and the interview before then discussing the content of the interview.
