This case study takes the reader through the multiple methods I deployed in the research into “Association Football, the Military and Invisible Nationalism.” These methods included observation, interviews, case studies, focus groups, literature reviews, discourse analysis, historical research, and the collection and deployment of visual data into the argument. This case study explores how these various elements coalesced into the final interpretation incorporated in the published article. It also details the process involved in transforming the initial first draft of the paper into the final published version and outlines both the time it took and its complexity. The case emphasizes the synthesis of different conceptual schemes into a novel hermeneutic approach.
