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: (1) habits of thought and work; (2) ethics and validity; (3) the relationships of the researcher and the participants; (4) data collection; (5) data analysis and interpretations; and (6) 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.
