Emergent Methods in Social Research introduces state-of-the-art social research methods that address the growing methods-theory gap within and across the disciplines. In this text, editors Sharlene Nagy Hesse-Biber and Patricia Leavy combine original, in-depth introductions, previously published articles, and original works to provide readers with a comprehensive view of new and cutting-edge research methods and methodologies.

Key Features:
  • Combines theoretical and empirical pieces: Both theoretical and methodological issues at the cutting edge of research are explored. The linking of theoretical and empirical pieces, in addition to the focus on emergent methods, makes this book highly unique to the field.
  • Focuses on two sub-topics: Emerging research techniques across disciplines and emerging methods within disciplines are examined. The scope of the work offers a very broad perspective of the possible uses and issues surrounding these techniques and methods. New methods include Listening, the Body, Auto-Ethnography, Biographical-Narrative Approach, Methodology of the Oppressed, Postcolonialism, Poststructuralism, Ethnodrama, and much more.
  • Challenges traditional ethnography: Social researchers are encouraged to question traditional forms of knowledge construction within ethnography. Theoretical insights challenge ethnographic researchers to build bridges that link new research questions with innovative ethnographic methods that can address issues of power, authority, and representation in the research process.

Intended Audience:
Perfect for graduate level Introductory and Intermediate Qualitative Research courses across the social sciences particularly Sociology, Political Science, Urban Studies, Anthropology, Communication, Social Work, and relevant Evaluation programs; as well as researchers and professionals interested in having a comprehensive view of new, cutting-edge, or alternative research methods.
