Sample text

I decided to divide my time Sceptical Sociologist, Reluctant Methodologist 41 between Boston and San Francisco. In Boston my gatekeeper was John Stoeckle, a remarkable physician and an energetic collaborator with social scientists. He managed my access to a hospital setting, and arranged a visiting position at Boston University. I had formed the plan to do a very focused ethnography on clinical pathology. I wanted to understand how members of a consulting specialty like pathology delivered authoritative adjudications about patient’s conditions, and how they worked with other specialists.

My substantial teaching, service, and research/publication records were downplayed by several of the senior faculty, and the department denied my tenure and promotion. John, barely tenured himself, wrote a scathing and very descriptive – and truthful – letter to the Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences, explaining the ‘‘taboo’’ that I had broken and other relevant factors. Ultimately, the Dean’s office relented and I was granted tenure and promotion. That was one of the many experiences that led John and I to vow to NEVER become like ‘‘them’’ if we ever became senior professors.

We referred to it as ethnographic methods. There were very few sources available for us to draw on, and once the course was launched it seemed a good idea to turn our joint thinking into a book (Hammersley & Atkinson, 1983). It was a good idea, although the actual writing of it was not perfectly smooth, and we delivered the manuscript seriously late. We did it for Gill Davies, a wonderful publisher, then working at Tavistock books (and later Professor of publishing at City University). She had to intervene forcefully to get us to complete the book.
