Rescuing Interactionism by Paul Atkinson #sssi #sociology

Before you all head out for the weekend, sit back and read Paul Atkinson’s short paper “Rescuing Interactionism from Qualitative Research“. As a taster I give you a short quote: “they [interactionists] have for an equally long time known that the unit of analysis is not the person, but the encounter, the situation, the institution, the daily round, the ceremonial form, the conventions of interaction”.

Enjoy!
