Type of Submission

Scholarly Poster


Conducting interviews in a cross-cultural setting is increasingly common for both practitioners and researchers. Planning to conduct semi-structured interviews in a culture that one may not be familiar with requires additional methodological and ethical considerations. In this poster, I will draw from from published scholarly works on cross-cultural interviewing practices across disciplines to demonstrate evidence-based best practices that professionals can utilize in their own cross-cultural interview project. I will include guidance for building trust with interviewees, designing data collection plans using a participatory approach, and tips for transcending language barriers to collect valid data.


Dr. Lisa Giacumo was an additional advisor on this project.
