The language of qualitative inquiry can at times seem arcane and difficult to interpret. Thomas A. Schwandt provides an indispensable guide to the terms and phrases that help shape the nature, purpose, logic, meaning, and methods of qualitative inquiry. Intended as a reference book for this vocabulary, Qualitative Inquiry considers the key concepts and issues that help shape the field. The definitions acknowledge the multiple and oft-contested points of view that characterize qualitative inquiry. Focusing primarily on philosophical and methodological concepts rather than technical aspects of methods and procedures, Qualitative Inquiry fills an important gap in the literature and will be a must-own volume for researchers at all levels.

Now in its second edition, Fostering Social Justice through Qualitative Inquiry, addresses the methods of conducting qualitative research using a social justice paradigm. Qualitative researchers increasingly flock to social justice research to move beyond academic discourse and aid marginalized, oppressed, or less-powerful communities and groups. The book addresses the differences that a social justice stance requires from the researcher, then discusses how major theories and qualitative methodologies are employed to create social justice in both the process and products of qualitative research. Snapshot theory chapters introduce the foundations of theories like feminism, critical race theory, queer theory, and many more. Robust methodological chapters cover grounded theory, phenomenology, ethnography, participatory action research, and other key qualitative designs. Chapters are written by experts in the specific theory or methodology, and exemplars of the authors work illustrate this style of research in action. New to this edition: • Expanded attention to the theories most commonly associated with social justice research by authors who have put it to use • Methodological chapters on autoethnography, collective memory work, digital methods and postqualitative inquiry • Chapter Reflection Questions to help students and their supervisors/instructors apply what they’ve learned • Recommended readings from each author with annotations to encourage additional exploration This established textbook will be suitable for graduate students and scholars in qualitative inquiry in a range of disciplines, including Education and Gender and Sexuality, Communication, Leisure Studies, and across the social sciences.

Teacher educators live hectic lives at institutional and discipline boundaries. Our greatest potential for influence is through developing relationships with others in our practice. Our work is fundamentally relational and emotional. We are obligated to the teachers we teach and the public students they teach. Our practice exists in the midst of experience, conflicting and often hostile boundaries, and between what we know from research and what we understand from practice. Self-study of practice invites researchers to embrace the hectic and fragmented territory of practice as the space for study. This book educates those who would like to explore practice in the methodology of self-study. It provides both a pragmatic and theoretic guide. It grounds the research in ontology and establishes dialogue as the inquiry process. It supports researchers through the use of frameworks to guide research and explication of strategies for conducting it.
