Abstract

This paper by Deborah Sundin and Kathleen Fahy critiques Denzin's interpretive interactionism in light of critical and postmodern ideas that undermine its theoretical foundations. The authors argue that interpretive interactionism can be improved by acknowledging insights from critical social theory. They present modifications and adaptations to arrive at a methodologically robust research design called critical, post-structural, interpretive interactionism.
