Comparing Ethnographies: Local Studies of Education across the Americas
Anderson-Levitt, Kathryn, Ed.; Rockwell, Elsie, Ed.
American Educational Research Association (AERA)
Crossing borders to compare ethnographic research across the Americas is difficult but imperative. In this volume, the editors and authors demonstrate what education researchers can learn by comparing ethnographic studies of similar problems conducted by scholars from Latin America on the one hand and from "North America" (the United States and Canada) on the other. From the volume's case studies, readers will learn that work done in other parts of the hemisphere is significant and that it can expand the boundaries of their own research and theorizing. This book contains the following chapters: (1) Introduction -- Comparing Ethnographies Across the Americas: Queries and Lessons (Elsie Rockwell and Kathryn Anderson-Levitt); (2) Contrasting Approaches to Indigenous Peoples' Education in Peru and Brazil: Mainstreaming or Differentiating Processes in Schooling (Patricia Ames and Ana Maria R. Gomes); (3) Contrast and Critical Articulation: Parallel Ethnographic Traditions Regarding Indigenous Education in the United States and Argentina (Aurolyn Luykx and Ana Padawer); (4) Ethnographies of Migration and Education in the United States and Argentina: Disrupting Discourses of Assimilation and Inclusion (Gabriela Novaro and Lesley Bartlett); (5) Teachers' Work: Comparing Ethnographies from Latin America and the United States (Kathryn Anderson-Levitt and Belmira Oliveira Bueno); (6) Commentary Border Relations: Speaking Across Ethnographies and Across Borders (Marta Sánchez and George W. Noblit); and (7) Epilogue -- On Difficult Travels in Educational Research: What Can Be Learned from Speaking Across Borders? (Inés Dussel).
