Out of Place : Fieldwork and Positionality in Law and Society Hardback
Edited by Lynette J. (National University of Singapore) Chua, Mark Fathi (University of California, Santa Cruz) Massoud
Part of the Cambridge Studies in Law and Society series
Out of Place tells a new history of the field of law and society through the experiences and fieldwork of successful writers from populations that academia has historically marginalized.
Encouraging collective and transparent self-reflection on positionality, the volume features scholars from around the world who share how their out-of-place positionalities influenced their research questions, data collection, analysis, and writing in law and society.
From China to Colombia, India to Indonesia, Singapore to South Africa, and the United Kingdom to the United States, these experts record how they conducted their fieldwork, how their privileges and disadvantages impacted their training and research, and what they learned about the law in the process.
As the global field of law and society becomes more diverse and an interest in identity grows, Out of Place is a call to embrace the power of positionality.
