Finding God in Wellworth High School: More Legitimations of Story-Making as Research
Clough, Peter
Ethnography and Education, v4 n3 p347-356 Sep 2009
A curious piece of ironic, partially-dramatised auto/ethnography, this paper reflects an ongoing attempt to explore the vapid certainties of my own faith, some of the brittle discomforts of contemporary schooling, and the possibilities of a social science research methodology which can artfully assemble on the same stage belief, empirics and critique. Though actually too didactic to be art--and at the same time too casual to be social science--the paper supposes a set of incidents, based remotely on "actual" events, which bring into collision some crises of faith, of schooling and of research methodology. I imagine that there is also some rather terrible humour to the piece. (Contains 2 tables and 7 notes.)
