This book introduces the theory and practice of qualitative longitudinal research in fields like social anthropology, sociology, and biographical research. It details the historical development of the research and its place in the context of temporal studies; how theoretical understanding of time can be used in empirical studies and how the life course can be understood through different temporal registers; how time can be used to build the longitudinal frame for a study and determine a sampling strategy; how to recruit participants, maintain contact, and re-trace participants over time frames, as well as ethical aspects; tools and techniques used to generate and analyze temporal data; and the strengths and challenges of qualitative longitudinal research.
