Dictionary The biographical method is the collection and analysis of an intensive account of a whole life or portion of a life, usually by an in-depth, unstructured interview. The account may be reinforced by semi-structured interviewing or personal documents. Rather than concentrating upon a ‘snapshot’ of an individual's present situation, the biographical approach emphasises the placement of the individual within a nexus of social connections, historical events and life experiences (the life history).

As a result, much of the content from 2004 to 2012 is currently unavailable to the public. However, this content has not been lost, and our web staff is in the process of converting these past articles for integration into the WordPress-based website you see here, which was launched in 2012. Many of these older articles have already been restored, and more will continue to be restored on an ongoing basis as they are cleaned up. MoversandShakers 2011
