What are the relations between the individual’s phenomenological experiences of grief, and cultural meanings and expectations related to grief? How do people in grief draw upon socio-cultural frames and resources to interpret their own grief experiences, and how do discourses of grief as e.g. a potential health hazard influence bereaved persons’ self-interpretations and practices? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in a longitudinal interview study following seven bereaved couples after the loss of an infant child. Some of the methodological and ethical issues I would like to address and discuss are: What part do emotions play in the relational co-construction of interview knowledge on vulnerable subjects? (How) is it possible to address the relational and culturally embedded aspects of grief through conversations with individuals and/or couples? Can a phenomenological approach avoid an individualization of the individual experiences?
