Introducing the idea of conversational storytelling interviewing (CSI) as an ‘indirect’ method of interviewing, David Boje and Grace Ann Rosile explore this innovative methodological framework as a way for respondents to tell their own story, without resorting to structured or semi-structured interviews.
 
Bringing together theory, method and praxis of storytelling in an iterative process of self-correcting induction, How to Use Conversational Storytelling Interviews for Your Dissertation offers researchers ways to move beyond the bystander role, urging them to be co-creators of their findings. Complete with exercises to train practitioners in new methods of inquiry and in-depth discussions of an array of philosophical issues, this illuminating book illustrates how rigorous self-correcting methods move inquiry from conversation to storytelling science.
 
Pioneering in both method and framework, this book is a crucial guide for using CSI in qualitative research for PhD students and researchers in management and organizational studies. Scholars of feminist and indigenous studies and other critical studies fields will benefit from alternative interviewing methods as these disciplines undergo an ontological turn.
Critical Acclaim
‘Over several decades David Boje and Grace Ann Rosile have been characterized as the theorists’ theorists, the methodologists’ methodologists and the practitioners’ practitioners. Their latest book – How to Use Conversational Storytelling Interviews for Your Dissertation – lives up to that characterization. The book introduces their latest iteration and development of storytelling as “conversational storytelling interviewing”, which, they contend, is an alternative to semi-structured interviewing. With its readability and clear, detailed enunciation, this book is destined to be a major influence on a new generation of scholars.’
– Albert J. Mills, Saint Mary's University, Canada
