A Critical Appraisal of Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot's Portraiture as a Method of Educational Research.
English, Fenwick W.
Educational Researcher, v29 n7 p21-26 Oct 2000
Critiques Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot's and Jessica Hoffmann Davis' work, "The Art and Science of Portraiture," from a postmodern perspective, critically examining assumptions and methods of portraiture, questioning the portraitist's authority in arbitrarily and unilaterally creating portraits, and suggesting that the problem with portraiture as a research method is its failure to interrogate what it conceals (the politics of vision).
