In this volume, researchers, practitioners, participants, and scholars address the proliferation of methodologies, ethical and disciplinary concerns, and issues of equity and diversity such research raises from a wide variety of viewpoints.
Acts of Inquiry in Qualitative Research also presents a broad assortment of articles by authors from several academic disciplines who examine their own fields' contribution to qualitative research in the past as well as future trends.
The book is divided into six sections reflecting different acts of inquiry in qualitative research:
habits of thought and work
ethics and validity
the relationships of the researcher and the participants
data analysis and interpretations
the uses of research
Acts of Inquiry is unique in bringing together a rich collection of theoretical arguments and case studies, making it an invaluable resource for teaching, learning, and practicing qualitative research.
