When a Respondent Dies

You are here

In his blog "When a Respondent Dies: A Note on Mourning, Research and the Academy," Xavier Durham, ISSI Graduate Fellow, thoughtfully discusses his thoughts, emotions, and experiences when he first heard about the death of one of his interviewees. Xavier reflects on what Felipe's death meant for his project and his role in it, and on how research places a boundary between the data and the life it speaks of.
