DEAD IN A POOL OF BLOOD Qualitative research is an enterprise that involves collecting data in the form of observations or interviews with people who are in a position to provide valuable information or stories that advance knowledge of a particular question (Minichiello & Kottler, 2009). It is a methodology that is particularly wellsuited to exploring areas that are relatively unknown, or that don’t lend themselves to the sort of measurement used in quantitative methods. One of my (Jeffrey’s) doctoral students, Kiran Regmi (mentioned in a previous chapter) was a physician and epidemiologist in Nepal.

She works three different jobs to support her family, in addition to taking classes in the evenings. From previous conversations—which were always challenging to negotiate, given Nga’s strong accent—I had learned that most of her family had been murdered in Saigon during the war. Her boyfriend had been beheaded right in front of her. I knew she had suffered terribly before immigrating to the United States. “Oh, Nga,” I responded, a bit flustered. I didn’t have the patience just then to devote the energy it would take to decode her language.

All through most of college I felt this way, too—everything just seemed so fake and ridiculous. My grades weren’t that good, either, so once I was out of college I didn’t have that many options. I thought I would try teaching, because the hours are good and you have summers off, but no decent high school would hire me. The only place I could get a job was in the ghetto, which I really didn’t want to do, but I had no other option really. As it turns out, I love this job. It may be the first thing in my life that I actually have ever loved.
