Pluralistic Inquiry for the History of Community Psychology
Kelly, James G.; Chang, Janet
Journal of Community Psychology, v36 n5 p675-691 Jul 2008
The authors present the case not only for studying the history of community psychology but also of adopting a pluralistic approach to historical inquiry, using multiple methods and access to resources from other disciplines (e.g., historians of science and social historians). Examples of substantive topics and methods, including social network and citation analyses, oral histories and narratives, larger cultural forces, and investigative reporting, that can illuminate historical issues are discussed. Current resources for the study of the history of community psychology are identified. Recommendations for the continued study of the history of community psychology are also presented.
