Critical Ethnography/Poststructuralist Concerns: Foucault and the Play of Memory.
Pignatelli, Frank
Interchange, v29 n4 p403-23 1998
Uses a poststructuralist and postmodernist critique, anchored in Foucault's work, to inform a critical ethnography, contending that one way to open up more room for critical and imaginative dialog about fairness, decency, and respect is to encourage the play of memory in ethnographic text. The paper demonstrates the utility of memoirs as a useful narrative device within a critical research agenda. (SM)
