Qualitative Research as Cultural and Religious Mirror: What Do Researchers Really Learn?
Religious Education, v103 n4 p410-426 Jul 2008
This article explores the interaction between the work and lives of five religious qualitative researchers whose research studies investigate both culture and religion. The ways their personal backgrounds, experiences, and values affect their choice of research topics and their relationships with research participants and with data, are revealed through the stories they tell about their work. Implications are drawn both for the conduct of qualitative, cultural study and for religious education.
