Handbook of qualitative research by Norman K Denzin( Book )

48 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 2,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In discipline after discipline, old models, methods, and theories of research have been supplanted or supplemented by new paradigms, strategies, and techniques based on a naturalistic study of people in their social and cultural environment. The Handbook of Qualitative Research is the first attempt to synthesize this vast world of activity. The handbook moves from the theoretical to the specific, examining the various paradigms for doing qualitative work, the strategies developed for studying people in their natural setting, and a variety of techniques for collecting, analyzing, interpreting, and reporting findings." "Contributors to this authoritative volume represent disciplines as diverse as sociology and education, medicine and communication, anthropology and policy studies, and come from three continents."--Jacket

Collecting and interpreting qualitative materials by Norman K Denzin( Book )

55 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 1,833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this, the third of a three-volume paperback version of the landmark Handbook of Qualitative Research, editors Norman K. Denzin and Yvonna S. Lincoln turn to the tasks of collecting, analyzing, and interpreting qualitative materials. Part I, on collecting and analyzing, looks at core topics such as interviewing, document analysis, visual materials, data management, and the use of computers in qualitative research, among others. Part II, which focuses on interpretation, examines the criteria for assessing validity in qualitative research, writing as a method of inquiry, program evaluation, and the role of qualitative research in the policy process. The Handbook of Qualitative Research is widely considered to be the state of the art in evaluating the field of qualitative inquiry. Now published in paperback in response to the needs of classroom teachers, Collecting and Interpreting Qualitative Materials will be an ideal supplement for a course on research methods, across a wide number of academic disciplines
Strategies of qualitative inquiry by Norman K Denzin( Book )

53 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 1,676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Strategies of qualitative inquiry isolates the major strategies--historically, the research methods--that researchers can use in conducting concrete qualitative studies. The question of methods begins with the design of the research project, which Valerie Janesick describes in dance terms. Design issues also involve matters of money and funding, issues discussed by Julianne Cheek. Questions of design always begin with a socially situated observer who moves from a research question to a paradigm or perspective, and then to the empirical world. So located, the researcher then addresses a range of methods that can be employed in any study. The history and uses of these strategies are explored extensively in this volume. The chapters move from performance ethnography to case studies, issues of ethnographic representation, grounded theory strategies, testimonies, life histories, participatory action research, and clinical research
The landscape of qualitative research : theories and issues by Norman K Denzin( Book )

53 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and Portuguese and held by 1,588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The landscape of qualitative research attempts to put the field of qualitative research in context. Part I locates the field, starting with history, then action research and the academy, research for whom?, and the politics and ethics of qualitative research. Part II isolates what we regard as the major historical and contemporary paradigms now structuring and influencing qualitative research in the human disciplines. The chapters move from competing paradigms (positivist, postpositivist, constructivist, critical theory) to specific interpretive perspectives, feminisms, racialized discourses, cultural studies, sexualities, and queer theory. Part III considers the future of qualitative research. [This book] will be an ideal supplement for a course on research methods, across a wide number of academic disciplines"--Page 4 of cover
The research act; a theoretical introduction to sociological methods by Norman K Denzin( Book )

54 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At once a unique textbook for methods courses and a major contribution to sociological theory, this book teaches students the principles of research and how to construct and test theories. It brings coherence to the study of methods by presenting five major approaches to experimentation: survey research, participant observation, life histories, and unobtrusive measures from a single theoretical point of view, symbolic interaction. It demonstrates the need for a synthesis between theory and methods, and shows how different methods limit and affect research results. Denzin's argues that no single method, theory, or observer can capture all that is relevant or important in reality. He argues for the use of triangulation and for a view of theory and methods as 'concept sensitizers'. His approach enables sociologists to acquire specific facts about a particular situation while simultaneously elevating these to the level of shared meaning. The author shows students how to proceed with research, bringing sharply into focus the possibilities and their limitations. Since his view is integrated rather than eclectic, this is much more than a 'how to do it' manual. Denzin points out to aspects of research that fall outside the scope of a given method yet affect results, and emphasizes the need to employ several methods to cross-check each other. The Research Act covers all the content of conventional methods courses. The presentation is exciting and imaginative, and provides a thorough review of major sociological methods, a cogent statement about approaches to sociological inquiry, and a source from which a understanding of the problems of research can be derived
Images of postmodern society : social theory and contemporary cinema by Norman K Denzin( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interpretive ethnography : ethnographic practices for the 21st century by Norman K Denzin( Book )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the world's culture has become both postmodern and multinational, so too must ethnography. In this volume, Norman K Denzin examines the changes and sounds a call to transform ethnographic writing in a manner befitting a new age. The author ponders the prospects, problems, and forms of ethnographic interpretive writing in the twenty-first century. He argues cogently and persuasively that postmodern ethnography is the moral discourse of the contemporary world, and that ethnographers can and should explore new types of experimental texts, performance-based texts, literary journalism and narra
The cinematic society : the voyeur's gaze by Norman K Denzin( Book )

17 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What influence does the cinema have on visual culture and social understanding? In what ways are we products of the cinematic gaze? This timely book, written by one of the leading commentators in the sociology of culture, highlights the extent to which the cinema has contributed to the rise of voyeurism throughout society." "The cinema not only turns its audience into voyeurs, eagerly following the lives of its screen characters, but repeatedly casts its key players as onlookers, spying on other people's lives. The nature of the cinematic voyeur - the obsessive outsider, the ethnic or sexual Other - is examined in depth, as are its implications for contemporary society. Denzin analyses Hollywood's manipulations of gender, race and class, and, drawing on the work of Foucault, argues that the cinematic gaze must be understood as part of the machinery of surveillance and power which regulates social behaviour in the late twentieth century."--Jacket
Reading race : Hollywood and the cinema of racial violence by Norman K Denzin( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like all writing, biographies are interpretive. They require no less than organizing into text the chaos of human existence. In Interpretive Biography Denzin combines one of the oldest techniques in the social sciences and humanities with one of the newest. Bringing in elements of postmodernism and interpretive social science, he re-examines the biographical and autobiographical genres. In addition, the book outlines a new way in which biographies should be conceptualized and shaped
Qualitative inquiry and the conservative challenge by Norman K Denzin( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is a call to qualitative researchers to respond to the political and methodological conservativism of the new millennium. Based upon the plenary papers at the first International Congress on Qualitative Inquiry, 22 scholars from five countries and many academic disciplines address how qualitative inquiry can maintain its forward-looking agenda, its emphasis on ethical practice, and its stance in favor of social justice in a world where conservatives aggressively control the political system, the university, and grant agency purse strings."--Publisher's website
Searching for Yellowstone : race, gender, family, and memory in the postmodern West by Norman K Denzin( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yellowstone. Sacagawea. Lewis & Clark. Transcontinental railroad. Indians as college mascots. All are iconic figures, symbols of the West in the Anglo-American imagination. Well-known cultural critic Norman Denzin interrogates each of these icons for their cultural meaning in this finely woven work. Part autoethnography, part historical narrative, part art criticism, part cultural theory, Denzin creates a postmodern bricolage of images, staged dramas, quotations, reminiscences and stories that strike to the essence of the American dream and the shattered dreams of the peoples it subjugated

Qualitative inquiry and the politics of evidence by Norman K Denzin( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is evidence in qualitative inquiry and how is it evaluate? Things defined as true or false in research are strongly influenced by social criteria and by the politics of academia. As a challenge to the dominance of conservative science, qualitative researchers are often victimized by these politics, both in the academy and the policy arena
Qualitative inquiry under fire : toward a new paradigm dialogue by Norman K Denzin( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of recent works by Norman K. Denzin provides a history of the field of qualitative inquiry over the past two decades. As perhaps the leading proponent of this style of research, Denzin has led the way toward more performative writing, toward conceptualizing research in terms of social justice, toward inclusion of indigenous voices, and toward new models of interpretation and representation. In these 13 essays-which originally appeared in a wide variety of sources and are edited and updated here-the author traces how these changes have transformed qualitative practice in recent years. In an era when qualitative inquiry is under fire from conservative governmental and academic bodies, he points the way toward the future, including a renewed dialogue on paradigmatic pluralism
Custer on canvas : representing Indians, memory, and violence in the new West by Norman K Denzin( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1876 events known as Custer's Last Stand, Battle of Little Big Horn, or Battle of Greasy Grass have been represented over 1000 times in various artistic media, from paintings to sculpture to fast food giveaways. Norman Denzin shows how these representations demonstrate the changing perceptions--often racist--of Native America by the majority culture, juxtaposed against very different readings shown in works composed by Native American artists. Consisting of autobiographical reminiscences, historical description, artistic representations, staged readings, and snippets of documents, this multi

Blue ribbon papers : interactionism : the emerging landscape( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 36 of Studies in Symbolic Interaction is solely devoted to the Blue-Ribbon Papers, under the special issue editorship of Lonnie Athens. Nine papers are published in which hotly-contested issues are raised that, even if only resolved partially, could permanently change the future direction of interactional thought. Among the questions addressed are: whether there ever existed a genuine sociological school of thought based on interactionsim at the University Chicago, whether Herbert Blumer misinterpreted the major thrust of George Herbert Meads thought, whether conventional or radical interactionism is the most insightful perspective from which to examine crucial life decisions that are conflict-ridden, whether George Herbert Meads and George Santayanas perspectives converged with or diverged from one anothers and with radical interactionism, whether language develops primarily from the inside out or from the outside in, whether personal economics is mainly responsible for self esteem and the over-all functioning of the self in everyday life, and whether filming constitutes a method of recording data that traditional ethnographers should include in their tool box?
