Qualitative Research Methodologies: Traditions, Designs, and Pedagogies
Edited by Kathleen deMarrais, Melissa Freeman, Jori Hall, and Kathy Roulston
The Qualitative Research Methodologies: Traditions, Designs, and Pedagogies series is designed to encourage qualitative researchers to look both backward and forward in the field of qualitative inquiry. We invite authors to submit proposals for both whole books and edited volumes focused on particular qualitative designs situated within their historical, theoretical, and disciplinary/cross disciplinary contexts. Pieces might include a tradition’s or design’s historical roots and key scholars, ways the approach has changed over time, as well as ethical and methodological considerations in the use of that particular research approach. They may also provide an introduction to contemporary designs created at the intersection of multiple, theoretical, and often assumed incommensurable historical paths. In addition, we encourage authors to submit proposals for books focused on the pedagogy of qualitative research methodologies that interrogate how we prepare researchers new to qualitative research methodologies with the theoretical, methodological, and ethical understandings and skills for their work.
