In this chapter, we examine the place of interviews in outdoor studies research through three key questions: 1) What is the subject in/of the interview? 2) What are the possibilities for dialogue in the conception, conduct and analysis of interviews? and 3) How can interviews in outdoor studies consider the agency of place and the more-than-human world? We explore each question from a theoretical scholarly perspective. To illustrate the practical implications emerging from each question, we present examples from our own research where we have employed interviews to explore the lived experience of educators, students and the places they inhabit.
