Description

This collection brings together essays which look at issues of research methodology in sociology. Some of them redefine existing techniques of data collection; some examine the need for reflexivity in the research process; and others confront epistemological issues.

Texte du rabat

This book brings together a collection of essays which look creatively and imaginatively at issues of research methods and methodology in sociology. Some papers critically revisit and redefine techniques such as the classic community study, the use of diaries, photography and art, others examine the need for reflexivity in the research process and the epistemological issues arising from being a researcher in administrative and political contexts. The diversity of research approaches discussed in this reader should make it an important contribution to research methods teaching for undergraduate and graduate students of sociology.
