Contributor(s): Friese, Carrie E [Co author].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: California Sage Publications 2018Edition: 2nd.Description: xxxiii, 426p. With index.ISBN: 9781452260907.Subject(s): Social science - Research methodology | Grounded theory | Situational analysis | Qualitative research | Qualitative analysisDDC classification: 300.72 Summary: The Second Edition of Situational Analysis: Grounded Theory After the Interpretive Turn offers an innovative extension of grounded theory useful in qualitative research projects that draws on interviews, observations, and visual, narrative, and historical discourse materials. To engage the dense complexities of real world situations, Situational Analysis (SA) braids together Strauss's ecological social worlds/arenas theory, Foucault’s discourse analysis, and Deleuze and Guattari’s rhizomes and assemblages. In SA, the situation itself becomes the fundamental unit of analysis. Using extensive examples, the authors discuss getting started, how to create three kinds of maps emphasizing differences and relationality (situational maps, social world/arena maps, and positional maps), the kinds of analytic work they accomplish, and how to write up the results centered on the distinctive strengths of the method. The book will serve as an invaluable resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level students, as well as professional researchers and consultants from diverse backgrounds pursuing qualitative projects. https://www.sagepub.com/hi/nam/situational-analysis/book238990
