Designing for observation

Summary, in Swedish

Design can be tricky for qualitative researchers who want to use observations. In the academic world we are often asked to have linear ambitions: proposals, applications, personal websites and presentations. But good practice in ethnography means documenting social life as process, not as a box, and grasping people’s active “doing” of social life rather than rendering it reducible or machinelike. In this chapter I explore a set of accounting procedures for designing observational studies that I find accessible and productive for dealing with this and other dilemmas, and I also explore a kind of flexible preparedness that many projects most likely will benefit from. I try to clarify hands-on ways of managing the design task in this area, I exemplify how to account for the method in advance and how to employ such accounts in practice, and I discuss how to set up a feasible project in terms of getting close to phenomena and sustaining field relations.
