Description


Ethnography is much more than a collection of research techniques. The paradigm wars in educational research have pushed qualitative methods to become increasingly focused on technique and theory. The essays in this volume speak against these trends by examining ethnography as a way of understanding particularities. Examining the ethnographic enterprise itself, Particularities demonstrates the power of ethnography through discrete studies of education and race.
