Disrupting Qualitative Inquiry: Possibilities and Tensions in Educational Research. Critical Qualitative Research. Volume 10

"Disrupting Qualitative Inquiry" is an edited volume that examines the possibilities and tensions encountered by scholars who adopt disruptive qualitative approaches to the study of educational contexts, issues, and phenomena. It presents a collection of innovative and intellectually stimulating chapters which illustrate the potential for disruptive qualitative research perspectives to advance social justice aims omnipresent in educational policy and practice dialogues. The book defines "disruptive" qualitative methodologies and methods in educational research as processes of inquiry which seek to: (1) Disrupt traditional notions of research roles and relationships; (2) Disrupt dominant approaches to the collection and analysis of data; (3) Disrupt traditional notions of representing and disseminating research findings; (4) Disrupt rigid epistemological and methodological boundaries; and (5) Disrupt disciplinarily boundaries and assumptive frameworks of how to do educational research. Scholars and graduate students interested in disrupting traditional approaches to the study of education will find this book of tremendous value. Given the inclusion of both research examples and reflective narratives, this book is an ideal text for adoption in introductory research design seminars as well as advanced courses devoted to theoretical and practical applications of qualitative and interpretive methodologies. The book contains the following chapters and authors: (1) "She Came at Me Wreckless!"
