Qualitative inquiry is not merely a research method or a series of analytic steps, but a holistic process that challenges the age-old qualitative/quantitative dichotomy. This book provides students and researchers with an approachable guide to a range of interpretive perspectives, including thematic, narrative, and arts-based types of inquiry.
Fully revised and updated, the Second Edition features:
- A brand new introduction firmly placing qualitative inquiry in context
- New further reading sections to guide you deeper into the relevant literature
- Expanded sections on auto-ethnography and technology
- A range of examples to demonstrate the application of research techniques
Presenting a clear overview of the theory, method and interpretation involved in qualitative inquiry, this book is the ideal starting point for those engaging in arts-based qualitative research.
