Handbook of qualitative research by Norman K Denzin( Book )

50 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and Japanese and held by 2,550 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

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

23 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and German and held by 1,733 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
Strategies of qualitative inquiry by Norman K Denzin( Book )

53 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 1,733 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

18 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in English and held by 1,564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research act; a theoretical introduction to sociological methods by Norman K Denzin( Book )

60 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,538 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
Searching for Yellowstone : race, gender, family, and memory in the postmodern West by Norman K Denzin( )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 1,506 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 conservative challenge by Norman K Denzin( )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 1,494 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

13 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 1,487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Qualitative inquiry under fire : toward a new paradigm dialogue by Norman K Denzin( )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 1,482 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
Qualitative inquiry and human rights by Norman K Denzin( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume of plenary papers from the Fifth International of Qualitative Inquiry in 2009, leading qualitative researchers show the various dimensions of the human rights work being done by scholar/activists in the social sciences, education, health care, social services, cultural studies, and other fields
Images of postmodern society : social theory and contemporary cinema by Norman K Denzin( )

27 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and Italian and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The idea of postmodernism poses a fundamental challenge to established modes of understanding society. Postmodern theory represents individuals in the contemporary world as voyeurs adrift in a sea of symbols, knowing and seeing themselves through mediated images from cinema and television." "In this book Norman Denzin uses a series of studies of contemporary mainstream Hollywood movies to explore the tension between ideas of the postmodern, and traditional ways of analysing society. The discussion moves between two forms of text: social theory, and cinematic representations of contemporary life. Denzin analyses the ideas of society embedded in post-structuralism, postmodernism, feminism, cultural studies and marxism through the ideas of key theorists (Mills, Baudrillard, Barthes, Habermas, Jameson, Bourdieu, Derrida and others). He relates these ideas to the problematic of the postmodern self as exposed in cinema -- Blue Velvet; Wall Street; Crimes and Misdemeanors; When Harry Met Sally; sex, lies and videotape; Do the Right Thing -- centering on the decisive performances of race, gender and class." "Images of Postmodern Society moves beyond a simply theoretical analysis of postmodernism to show how it relates to a series of key texts in contemporary life. In doing so, it demonstrates the challenge of postmodernism to classical sociological ways of representing and writing about the dramaturgical, cinematic society. The insights of this approach will appeal to students and researchers not only in sociology and cultural studies but also in philosophy, film theory and across the social sciences and humanities.

Custer on canvas : representing Indians, memory, and violence in the new West by Norman K Denzin( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 1,327 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( )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,310 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?

Contributions from many of the world's leading qualitative researchers in communications, education, sociology, and related disciplines address topics including community research, transformative education, and researcher ethics, and guide the field toward an engaged, activ
The cinematic society : the voyeur's gaze by Norman K Denzin( )

17 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,212 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
