The idea for a working group on interpretation first came up in 2014 at the annual conference of the GPJE in Halle. Back then, the young researchers founded their own working group on joint interpretation, led by David Jahr, Farina Nagel, Benjamin Moritz and Stefanie Kessler. They met on a regular basis in order to jointly interpret different empirical data. The group mainly used the documentary method according to Ralf Bohnsack.
In July 2020, the tradition was restored. Since then, there are monthly virtual meetings taking place again, continuing the work by jointly interpreting empirical data. Non-virtual conferences are about to take place in the future, too.
Throughout the working group meetings, different qualitative methods are being used. All members can bring their own empirical data, which will be interpreted/reconstructed together, according to the rules of the respective method.
Interested parties with and without previous experience are welcome to participate and to bring their own material.
