Mixed Metaphors for Reading and Writing the Qualitative Thesis in Adult Education.
Lander, Dorothy
Studies in the Education of Adults, v32 n2 p148-65 Oct 2000
Examination of writing and reading graduate theses from the perspectives of theorists, graduate students, and faculty advisors resulted in the conceptualization of the process as dialogical storytelling and rewriting of each other's metaphors. Instead of modernist beginning-to-end narratives, postmodern qualitative research is perceived as cartography and work in progress. (Contains 78 references.) (SK)
