Making Research Public in Troubled Times : Pedagogy, Activism, and Critical Obligations Hardback

Edited by Julianne Cheek, M. Franicine Huckaby


These are certainly troubled times in which neoliberal capitalist patriarchy and the tyranny of racism and domination are continually reinscribed on the bodies and lives of so many.

However, critical researchers understand the necessity for, as well as the difficulty of, using research to facilitate public transformations that lead to increased justice and equity.

The authors contributing to Making Research Public in Troubled Times recognize the importance of diverse pedagogies, activism, and ethical choices regarding an environment that supports critical research in such oppressive times.

Diverse pedagogies that can facilitate the education of critical public researchers across disciplines are illustrated in the first set of chapters addressing questions like: What is important in teaching critical qualitative inquiry?

How do students, materials, histories, and the public influence this teaching?

What have we learned over years of attempting to teach critical qualitative research methods?

The authors in the second section are activist local scholars sharing their projects and explaining what this work means for critical qualitative inquiry.

This work includes methods used to incorporate critical qualitative inquiry into community activism.

Finally, chapters in the last section focus on future steps and most important actions for the ways critical qualitative inquiry can be conceptualized to address concerns in these troubled times.
