The Landscape of Qualitative Research, 3rd Edition / Edition 3 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- SAGE Publications
The Landscape of Qualitative Research, Third Edition, the first volume of the paperback versions of the The SAGE Handbook of Qualitative Research, Third Edition, takes a look at the field from a broadly theoretical perspective, and is composed of the Handbook's Parts I (“Locating the Field”), II (“Major Paradigms and Perspectives”), and VI (“The Future of Qualitative Research”).
The Landscape of Qualitative Research, Third Edition attempts to put the field of qualitative research in context. Part I provides background on the field, starting with history, then action research and the academy, and the politics and ethics of qualitative research. Part II isolates what we regard as the major historical and contemporary paradigms now structuring and influencing qualitative research in the human disciplines. The chapters move from competing paradigms (positivist, post positivist, constructivist, critical theory) to specific interpretive perspectives, feminisms, racialized discourses, cultural studies, sexualities, and queer theory. Part III considers the future of qualitative research.
