Qualitative Inquiry and Global Crisesby Norman K Denzin (Editor), Michael D Giardina (Editor)
This plenary volume from the Sixth International Congress on Qualitative Inquiry (2010) highlights the variety of roles played by qualitative researchers in addressing global communities in crisis. It shows how qualitative researchers can bridge gaps in cultural and linguistic understanding to address issues of disparity in race, ethnicity, gender, and environment in the interests of global social justice and human rights. Authored by many of the world’s leading qualitative researchers, the signature articles in this volume point qualitative researchers toward a research stance of ethics, meaning, and advocacy.
