LIVES IN CONTEXT  The Art of Life History Research, Ardra L. Cole
129 Ardra L. Cole LIVES IN CONTEXT The Art of Life History Research

Cover has light scuffing and light edge/corner wear. Pages are all intact and clan, however numerous pages have yellow highlighting, somewhat less towards rear of book. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 272 pages; The reflexive turn in qualitative research has transformed the process of doing life history research. No longer are research subjects examined through the lens of the all-knowing but supposedly invisible researcher. As Ardra Cole and Gary Knowles point out in this fresh introduction to conducting life history research, the process is now one of mutuality, empathy, sensitivity and caring. The authors carry the novice researcher through the steps of conducting life history research-- from conceptualizing the project to the various means of presenting results-- with an eye toward understanding the complex relationship between participant and researcher and how that shapes the project. In addition to examples from their own research, Cole and Knowles bring in the work of a dozen novice researchers who explain the challenges they faced in developing their own life history projects in a wide variety of settings. Well written, interesting, and pedagogically sound, LIVES IN CONTEXT is the ideal text for teaching life history research to students and an important reference for the bookshelf of all qualitative researchers.
