The ethnographic self : fieldwork and the representation of identity by Amanda Coffey( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What are the relationships between the self and fieldwork? How do personal, emotional and identity issues impact on fieldwork?" "The Ethnographic Self argues that ethnographers and others involved in research in the field should be aware of how fieldwork affects the researcher, and how the researcher affects the field. Coffey synthesizes accounts of the personal experience of ethnography, and aims to make sense of the process of fieldwork research as a set of practical, intellectual and emotional accomplishments. The book is thematically arranged and illustrated with a wide range of empirical material. The author examines the ethnographic presence in the field, and the implications of this in and beyond fieldwork, exploring issues such as the creation of the ethnographic self, and the embodiment and sexualization of the field and self." "The Ethnographic Self will be of interest to anyone working in the area of qualitative research, but especially for sociologists, and educational and health researchers."--Jacket

Education and social change by Amanda Coffey( Book )

"This text undertakes a systematic sociological analysis of contemporary educational policy and practice. In doing so it charts the substantial and significant changes that education systems have undergone over recent decades, and places them within a broader context of social change. Thematically structured, the book brings together a diverse body of material from the sociology of education to provide a coherent and logical text. It takes a comprehensive approach, summarizing transformations that have occurred in educational policy, and addressing the consequences for institutions as well as for teachers, parents and learners. The author explores the complex and changing relationships between the state and the processes and practices of education. She also stresses the importance of educational experiences for the (re)production of collective and individual biographies. The result is an invaluable text for sociology and social policy students as well as for education professionals engaged in training or further study."--Jacket

Researching young people by Tom Hall( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This set brings together a wide-ranging but often disparate body of work, including important theoretical, substantive and methodological contributions to the study of young people from journals across the disciplines. The social sciences have consistently sought ways of engaging with young people; as a field of study 'youth studies' has always been multidisciplinary - drawing on theoretical perspectives, empirical concerns and methodological frameworks from sociology, social policy, education, psychology, anthropology, cultural studies, gender studies, childhood studies, social work, criminology and health studies. This had resulted in a wide-ranging but often disparate body of work, and to a research field that has, by its very nature, drawn on a wide variety of research tools and techniques. This diversity and richness means important theoretical, substantive and methodological contributions to the study of young people are found in mainstream journals across the disciplines. This collection brings together key contributions to the social scientific study of young people's lives and experiences. It addresses the methodological and empirical challenges of undertaking research with and about young people; and provides opportunities to compare the data, analyses and theoretical contribution of different methodological approaches. The overarching theme of the collection is methodological - exemplifying the different ways of engaging with young people as a field of study

Masculinity and education( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The uncertain, complex and problematic relationships between masculinity and education have come to occupy a prominent position within the sociology of education in recent years. This collection of articles brings together a range of different perspectives, offering both empirical and theoretical contributions to our understanding of this subject. The articles seek to broaden our sociological understanding by considering masculinities in relation to a variety of educational setting and contexts. These include the role of football in the playground of a junior school, the question of why more boys study AS-level mathematics in England, the changing rhetoric of education ministers, and attempts to increase the number of male primary school teachers in Australia. The collection also engages with the broader context of gender politics and educational theory and the volume concludes with a study of the move away from class analysis within educational theories in recent decades, taking English white working class masculinity as its main focus. The collection offers a perceptive insight into a crucial and current area within the sociology of education. This book was originally published as a special issue of the British Journal of Sociology of Education
