How can we best understand the conditions of possibility vis-a-vis a particular phenomenon so that we can think and research toward (paraphrasing HARAWAY, 2007) futures of modest but livable means more equitably distributed for humans and other living things?
I believe qualitative research can contribute significantly here.
I immediately met Susan Leigh STAR in Anselm's symbolic interactionist theory class and soon we were in a writing group for qualitative researchers, including Kathy CHARMAZ and others.
In 2012, Professor CLARKE was awarded the Bernal Prize for Outstanding Contributions from the Society for Social Studies of Science.
: In 2005, Adele CLARKE first published her book on "Situational Analysis," a well-received elaboration of grounded theory methodology. A major collaborative project produced "Biomedicalization: Technoscientific Transformations of Health, Illness, and U. Biomedicine" (CLARKE, FISHMAN, FOSKET, MAMO & SHIM, 2003), and a co-edited volume on "Biomedicalization" (CLARKE, MAMO, FOSKET, FISHMAN & SHIM, 2010) includes her paper on healthscapes and their visual cultures.
Situational analysis (SA) combines older as well as more recent traditions of pragmatist sociology, especially those of the Chicago School and social worlds/arenas theory by Anselm STRAUSS, with FOUCAULT's perspective on discourse, feminist thinking, and post-positivist epistemology. Her "Situational Analysis: Grounded Theory After the Postmodern Turn" (2005) won the 2006 Cooley Award from the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction.
We even read and commented on Anselm's draft chapters for his book "Qualitative Analysis for Social Scientists"(STRAUSS, 1987) that actually offers transcripts of some of our working group's sessions. My dissertation research (discussed below) coalesced and inscribed my commitments to it.
 When I became a student at UCSF, I had been teaching women's studies for some years and brought a strong feminist sensibility to bear on issues of methods as well as substance.In this interview with Reiner KELLER, she explains the theoretical foundations and academic motivations of this approach, and describes the concrete analytical strategies proposed by SA. It has appeared in German translation as "Situationsanalyse.
