The Las Vegas Thesis
Sughrua, William
Qualitative Inquiry, v16 n10 p819-836 Dec 2010
Following "reflexive ethnography" and utilizing an approach of "performative narrative" and "layered text", this article explores how Bachelor of Arts students in the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language program at a public university in Mexico successfully manage the writing of an inductive-oriented thesis in English by resisting bibliographic research. This becomes the theme that is "enacted" or "dramaticized" through a crossover narrative of fictionalization, classroom action research, autobiography, and Camusian philosophy. (Contains 1 note.)
