Overview

Eleven international scholars contribute nine essays exploring the methodological and theoretical relationships—both the meeting points and the points of tension—between ethnography and Foucault's genealogical method. The aim is "a strategic mapping that will allow work to be done across and between these traditions of research, work that will interweave a careful path between the pitfalls of one or the other." A sampling of topics: authenticity and irony in educational research, discovering meaning in the social sciences, genealogy meets ethnography in research on contemporary school reforms.
