Critical Ethnography : Method, Ethics, and Performance, Paperback / softback Book

Critical Ethnography : Method, Ethics, and Performance Paperback / softback


What is critical ethnography? How do we use theory to interpret research data? What is performance ethnography? Readers can find answers to these fundamental questions in D.

Soyini Madison's engaging and highly multidisciplinary Third Edition of Critical Ethnography: Methods, Ethics, and Performance.

The book presents a fresh new look at critical ethnography by emphasizing the significance of ethics and performance in the art and politics of fieldwork.

The productive links between theory and method are celebrated in this title.

Theoretical concepts range from queer theory, feminist theory, and critical race theory to Marxism and phenomenology.

The methodological techniques range from designing and asking in-depth interview questions and developing rapport to coding and interpreting data.

The various theories and methods culminate in three fictional ethnographic case studies that "enact" the interdependence between theory and method and the significance of social theory, ethics, and performance. Key Features:Cutting-edge approach and perspective: It is the first book to explore and focus on the intersections between theory, fieldwork methods, performance, and praxis. Global examples and material: Theories, methods, and examples are drawn from scholarship that extends beyond the West to include developing world and post-colonial thinkers and practitioners. Effective pedagogy: Examples of ethnographic projects illustrate more abstract or complex discussions and concepts. Critical Ethnography reaches out to any student conducting field research.

In particular, upper-division undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in ethnography, qualitative research methods, critical/cultural research methods, or advanced research methods will find this book to be of great value.
