Positioning Research : Shifting Paradigms, Interdisciplinarity and Indigeneity Paperback / softback
Edited by Margaret Kumar, Supriya Pattanayak
The availability of research methodologies and frameworks to facilitate different ways of gathering knowledge and performing research is often a matter of concern for early career researchers as well as advanced research scholars.
Positioning Research, while identifying this gap, provides avenues that encompass differing cultural backgrounds and disciplines to enable exploration of research frameworks and shifting paradigms, considering the impact of social media and new forms of knowledge that assist real-time, global distribution of research.
The book highlights the possibilities of transition into `the third space', where negotiation and dialogue are central to positioning research.
It upholds the principle that different research methodologies are equally valid and valued in contributing to new knowledge.
The book focuses on the contexts in which research questions are conceptualised and designed, and highlights the implications of research for the various partners and communities that participate in the research.
It thus provides a cutting-edge framework for conducting multidisciplinary research.
