Peregrine Schwartz-Shea is a Professor in the Political Science Department, University of Utah. She published her early research using experimental methods and rational choice theory. Shifting theoretical interests led to research focusing on methodological practices in political science and interpretive methods. With Dvora Yanow, she is co-editor of the Routledge Series in Interpretive Methods. They co-authored the first volume in the series, Interpretive Research Design: Concepts and Processes. The second edition of their co-edited Interpretation and Method: Empirical Research Methods and the Interpretive Turn (ME Sharpe) appeared in 2014. Her current research examines US human subjects’ protection policy, building on the 2014 Betty Glad Symposium: Field Research and US Institutional Review Board Policy. Professor Schwartz-Shea is past president of the Western Political Science Association (2012-13) and recipient of a University of Utah Graduate Student Mentor Award (2012) and a National Science Foundation grant to co-organize the Workshop on Interpretive Methodologies in Political Science (2009).
