Writing and Retelling Multiple Ethnographic Tales of a Soup Kitchen for the Homeless.
Miller, Dana L.; Creswell, John W.; Olander, Lisa
An ethnographic study narrated three tales about a soup kitchen for the homeless and the near-homeless. To provide a cultural, ethnographic analysis, and share fieldwork experiences the study began with realist and confessional tales. These two tales emerged from the initial writing and presenting of the soup kitchen ethnography to qualitative research classes. As the study was shared with social justice researchers after leaving the field, a critical perspective emerged, leading to the reflective interrogation of the realist and confessional tales. The study's text describes how multiple ethnographic tales emerge and are further shaped by the retelling of the tales. Contains 2 figures and 35 references. (Author/BT)
