At the annual meeting of the GPJE in 2014 in Halle, the idea to establish a community focusing on qualitative interpretation was born. Members of the ECR then formed a group which met regularly to interpret empirical data. Back then, the group led by David Jahr, Farina Nagel, Benjamin Moritz and Stefanie Kessler mainly worked with the documentary method.
Originally, the group was established for the ECR. But in 2023, the working group got a new name and was opened for all researchers. The quarterly meetings are mainly being held online. Each member can take the responsibility for a meeting by bringing the empirical data and introducing the method.
All researchers, with and without previous experience, are invited to take part and bring their data and methods from all stages of their research. The focal point is the common interpretation, not the individual performance.
