Example text

The interviews again lasted between 15 and 25 minutes and many of the children were keen to get back to class to complete their work. In an ethnographic interview the subject matter can vary from issues such as how long the interviewee has lived in the area, to how s/he has interpreted the social interaction in the area. This means that different types of ‘hard information’ will be mixed with the interviewed person’s understandings and interpretations of the social setting or the activities discussed.

This does not mean that no casual conversation occurred, but that it was less than originally hoped for. As originally planned somewhat more formal audio taped interviews with the children and the teachers were conducted during the latter part of the fieldwork. These were what M. Hammersley and P. Atkinson (1983:113) call ethnographic interviews making a distinction between these and what they call standardised interviews. The ethnographic interview is seen as a reflexive interview where the ethnographer tries to cover certain issues instead of bringing specific questions into the interview.

This may happen when, within the routine everyday interaction between children and adults, the adults are positioned as having the right (and obligation) to control students. The question raised is this chapter is in which situations and in what manner the adults’ controlling activities becomes visible, and how the children react when their competence is questioned. In the last chapter, Chapter Eight, the children’s position will be discussed in relation to the issues raised in the previous chapters.
