This article addresses the implications of researcher-student cooperation in the production of empirical material.

Although there are clear advantages, the specific relations and positions arising…

Hammersley, Martyn – Ethnography and Education, 2018
This paper notes that, in the field of education and beyond, the term "ethnography" has acquired a range of meanings, and comes in many different versions, these often reflecting sharply divergent orientations. I argue that this is a major problem that requires attention; particularly since today there are some serious threats to the…

Parker-Jenkins, Marie – Ethnography and Education, 2018
This paper was prompted by the question, what do we mean by conducting "ethnography"? Is it in fact "case study" drawing on ethnographic techniques? My contention is that in many cases, researchers are not actually conducting ethnography as understood within a traditional sense but rather are engaging in case study, drawing on…

The results show how Forest School's…

Clapham, Andrew; Vickers, Rob – Ethnography and Education, 2018
This paper considers how governors in the English "Further Education and Skills" (FE) sector examined their practice as ethnographers.

Bittner, Martin; Wittfeld, Meike – Ethnography and Education, 2018
The article takes its starting point from the current debate on sexual violence in educational institutions. It follows an ethnographic perspective without observing sexual violence directly, arguing that doing so is ethically impossible. Instead it suggests deducing risks for sexual violence through the limits of pedagogical practices. Discussing…

Roch, Anna; Dean, Isabel; Breidenstein, Georg – Ethnography and Education, 2018
Even though choice is not officially a feature in the German primary school system, some parents intervene in determining which school their child attends. Especially in urban contexts, the informal school market is growing. This demand is based on promises with respect to a certain quality of education as well as on issues that prevail in certain…

Hemming, Peter J. – Ethnography and Education, 2018
Since the "Children Act 2004" in both England and Wales, schools are expected to give due attention to the issue of children's rights, particularly respect for the views of pupils in matters that affect them, as outlined in Article 12 of the UNCRC. However, one theme that has been relatively unexplored in the literature on children's…

Rapley, Eve – Ethnography and Education, 2018
Arguably an essential element of a doctoral study is to establish and acknowledge a philosophical worldview. As part of this, researchers need to engage with and challenge their assumptions about the nature of being, the nature of knowledge, and what can be known. Only then can methodological designs, approaches to data analysis, and relationships…

Aili, Carola; Nilsson, Lars-Erik – Ethnography and Education, 2018
Citizens of modern societies must trust a broad range of systems and professionals. When distrust arises, professionals are expected to be accountable. This paper draws on conversational material from a preschool team meeting. When a preschool work team prepares to meet a parent who has complained about their recurring neglect to change her…
