Handbook of Critical and Indigenous Methodologies

Handbook of Critical and Indigenous Methodologies

Edited by:

May 2008 | 624 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

The Handbook of Critical and Indigenous Methodologies is the only handbook to make connections regarding many of the perspectives of the "new" critical theorists and emerging indigenous methodologies.

Built on the foundation of the landmark SAGE Handbook of Qualitative Research, the Handbook of Critical and Indigenous Methodologies extends beyond the investigation of qualitative inquiry itself to explore the indigenous and nonindigenous voices that inform research, policy, politics, and social justice. Editors Norman K. Denzin, Yvonna S. Lincoln, and Linda Tuhiwai Smith explore in depth some of the newer formulations of critical theories and many indigenous perspectives, and seek to make transparent the linkages between the two.

Key Features

• Contains global examples including South African, Hawaiian, Maori, Central African and Islamic ones.

• Includes a "Who's Who" of educators and researchers in critical methodologies.

• Provides a comprehensive body of work that represents the state of the art for critical methodologies and indigenous discourses

• Covers the history of critical and indigenous theory and how it came to inform and impact qualitative research

• Offers an historical representation of critical theory, critical pedagogy, and indigenous discourse.

• Explores critical theory and action theory, and their hybrid discourses: PAR, feminism, action research, social constructivism, ethnodrama, community action research, poetics.

• Presents a candid conversation between indigenous and nonindigenous discourses.

This Handbook serves as a guide to help Western researchers understand the new and reconfigured territories they might wish to explore.

"They cover much ground, but [...] for this reviewer, two types of essays stand out as particularly valuable: those that address fairly concrete issues and situations, and those written by individuals who inhabit more than one conceptual universe. There are ample examples of both categories."
