Ethical Futures in Qualitative Research: Decolonizing the Politics of Knowledge

Front Cover
Left Coast Press, 2007 - Social Science - 279 pages
Ethics has been a perennial concern of qualitative researchers. The subject has been confounded with the emergence of human subjects regulations, the increased concern with indigenous communities, the globalization of research practices, and the breakdown of barriers between researcher and subject. The original contributions to this volume highlight the key topics that face contemporary qualitative researchers and those that will likely emerge in the near future. Written by many of the leading figures in the field--Lincoln, Denzin, Schwandt, Richardson, Ellis, Bochner, Morse, among others--this book will help shape the ethical response of the field to the challenges presented by the contemporary research environment.
