Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly volume 41, number 2 (Spring 2018) focuses on the concept of interviewing as a creative practice. In their introduction, “Putting Things Together: Introduction to Interviewing as Creative Practice,” guest editors Anneleen Masschelein and Rebecca Roach write:
[W]e consider the interview as an encounter, as an assemblage of heterogeneous elements. It promises access to an interior but ultimately remains unruly: resisting interpretative truth, it reveals things other than what it may promise. Thus, in this special issue as it now stands, our interest has shifted from questions of genre to the notion of the interview as an “unconcept”: ambiguous, paradoxical, the interview belongs everywhere and nowhere.
