Abstract: Critics of interview methods often point to how interviews only capture one participant's perspective; or that interviews are limited in that they tend to reflect a particular discourse, that of the interviewer and the interviewed. This paper presents multiadic interviewing and analysis, the approach of interviewing multiple participants apart and together using the same or a similar interview protocol to gain a sense of how absence and presence of others affects interview discourses. Rather than using multiple interviews as a simple validity tool seeking truth, this method instead helps to unpack how multiple social scenes unpack multiple truths; and that designing interviews with these multiple social interactions in mind will allow for a richer data set with more possibilities to emerge.

Abstract: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic illness affecting millions of people worldwide at a time of life commonly considered their prime years. For many, the condition severely restricts everyday life, threatening their ability to perform daily tasks and sustain essential social ties. Semi-structured, in-person interviews with 23 individuals diagnosed with MS were conducted. Grounded theory techniques were utilized to collect, code, and analyze narrative textual data. Core findings revealed how individuals performed a number of selves depending on the visibility of their symptoms and whom they were interacting. This information can be used to better understand not simply the biomedical aspects of MS, but also the social consequences of becoming diagnosed and living with a chronic illness such as MS in modern neoliberal societies. Through having discussions with both individuals and groups of individuals who have been diagnosed with MS, this project analyzes how interactions influence the performance of self. Illness narratives allow experts, who have gone through the process of diagnosis and now live everyday with the illness reflect on how they came to terms with their modified identity.

Abstract: This study adopts La Pastina and Straubhaar’s (2005) theory of multiple proximities to explore how local Chinese audience receive the Internet services offered by American and local companies, and how the audience’s reception affects the competition between them at the different stages of Chinese Internet development. It is found that the combined impacts of genre proximity and cultural proximity result in the initial success of American Internet companies at the early stage of China Internet development as well as their predicament at the later stage. “Modernity proximity” emerges as a new concept to mediate the operations of both genre proximity and cultural proximity, and constitute, by itself, an important component of multiple proximities theory.
