Qualitative inquiry is not merely a research method or a series of analytic steps, but a holistic process that challenges the age-old qualitative/quantitative dichotomy. This book provides students and researchers with an approachable guide to a range of interpretive perspectives, including thematic, narrative, and arts-based types of inquiry.

Fully revised and updated, the SecondĀ Edition features:

  • A brand new introduction firmly placing qualitative inquiry in context
  • New further reading sections to guide you deeper into the relevant literature
  • Expanded sections on auto-ethnography and technology
  • A range of examples to demonstrate the application of research techniques

Presenting a clear overview of the theory, method and interpretation involved in qualitative inquiry, this book is the ideal starting point for those engaging in arts-based qualitative research.
