An Introduction to Qualitative Research: Becoming Culturally Responsive

About the eBook

This engaging introduction to all aspects of qualitative research challenges students to consider how their research can be culturally responsive. The first part of the book introduces the foundations including theory, ethics, and reflexivity, with an emphasis on multiple methodologies, from traditional to critical and cutting-edge. The second part covers practical guidance from writing proposals to data collection, and includes a chapter dedicated to creating a culturally responsive relationship with research participants. Finally, readers engage with how the quality of research is enhanced, how data are analyzed, and how research accounts are created and disseminated. Areas vital to the health of qualitative research are addressed including systemic racism and cultural humility, with cutting-edge suggestions offered in areas like hybrid research, harnessing technology, and use of social media. Multiple identities are centered in examples throughout including race, gender, and those who are hard to reach or seldom heard in research. Textboxes featuring scholars, student researchers, and community members invite readers into dialogue in an area that is contested, swiftly shifting, and always vibrant with potential.

Resources for instructors are available on a website to accompany the book.
