Discussions are provided to help you read ethnographic work - your own and that of others - with more critical sensitivity and with more insight. These provocative new essays redefine the goals, methods, and assumptions of qualitative and ethnographic research in composition studies, making evident not only the crucial importance of ethnographic research, but also its resilience. As Ethnography Unbound makes evident, critical ethnographers are retheorizing their methodologies in ways that both redefine ethnographic practices and values and, at the same time, have begun to liberate ethnographic practices from the often-disabling stronghold of postmodern critique.

On Ethnography by Brian V. H43 Two experienced and esteemed ethnographers examine how to use ethnographic methods to conduct research in language and literacy. K26 In this work, the authors provide the first systematic exploration of the philosophical foundations and the historical development of qualitative inquiry for language and literacy researchers - novices and experts alike.
