Doing critical ethnography

By: Thomas, Jim.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Qualitative research methods. Publisher: Newbury Park Sage Publications 1993Description: vii, 83 p.ISBN: 9780803939233.Subject(s): Sociology | Methodology | Ethnology - MethodologyDDC classification: 301.01 Summary: In this volume, Thomas unites two traditions in social science - critical theory and qualitative research - in an attempt to apply a critical world view to the conventional logic of cultural inquiry. Rather than standing in opposition to traditional ethnography, it offers a style of considering the direct relationship between knowledge, society and political action. Thomas addresses the question: if the duty of the researcher entails the righting of social wrongs as well as producing valid research results, how is it possible to juxtapose the two goals? He defines the rules and guidelines for a praxis-oriented ethnographic tradition, one both ideologically engaged and scientifically valid. In addition, he outlines the various types of critical ethnography, explaining the tenets of each and how research can be carried out under these frameworks. https://in.sagepub.com/en-in/sas/doing-critical-ethnography/book3833#contents
