The place of emotions in research poses many dilemmas. Ignoring emotions can have significant costs for analysis and for competence as researchers. This volume explores the links between emotion and analysis: how the feelings of fieldworkers - about their professional identity, their work and the people they study - inform analyses. The conclusion offers an extended example from one of the authors' field studies to highlight how the emotions of the fieldworkers can enhance qualitative analyses.

Author Biography

Area of Interest: Symbolic Interaction, Social Psychology, Qualitative Research, Sociology of Emotions, Race, Class and Gender My current research involves interviewing scholars in a variety of fields about collaborative research. I'm learning about the assumptions that people in different disciplines make about collaboration, the pros and cons of collaborating with others, how they negotiate co-authorship, and how they think other researchers view their work. I got interested in this topic because I've co-authored several publications with colleagues over the years and enjoy it-although it's quite different from solo research and writing. I'm also interested in social inequality, including my and my colleagues' efforts to teach undergraduates about it. With my colleague Jessica Fields, I'm co-authoring a paper about youth sexuality educators in San Francisco Bay area communities.
