This article discusses the interview’s status and use in literary studies and literary culture more broadly. It outlines a typology of the interview as conceived in literary studies, arguing that the diversity of conceptions and uses of the form and practice is illuminating for our understandings of why interviews have flourished within the field while being simultaneously belittled by literary scholars. Moreover, in tracing the rise of Interview Studies in the last decade, the article claims that this diversity within literary studies is suggestive for scholars working in other disciplines.
