Critical Qualitative Research Reader. Critical Qualitative Research. Volume 2
Steinberg, Shirley R., Ed.; Cannella, Gaile S., Ed.
Peter Lang New York
This volume of transformed research utilizes an activist approach to examine the notion that nothing is apolitical. Research projects themselves are critically examined for power orientations, even as they are used to address curricular problems and educational or societal issues. Philosophical perspectives that have facilitated an understanding of issues of power are used to conceptualize research problems as well as determine methodologies. These life-experience perspectives include, but are not limited to, postcolonial and subaltern studies, feminisms, poststructuralism, cultural studies, and critical race theory. The book also examines the use of language, discourse practices, and power relations that prevent more socially just transformations. The "Critical Qualitative Research Reader" is an invaluable text for undergraduate and graduate classrooms as well as an important volume for researchers.
