Key Concepts in Ethnography by Karen O'Reilly

Book Description

"An accessible and entertaining read, useful to anybody interested in the ethnographic method." - Paul Miller, University of Cumbria "A very good introduction to ethnographic research, particularly useful for first time researchers." - Heather Macdonald, Chester University "The perfect introductory guide for students embarking on qualitative research for the first time...This should be of aid to the ethnographic novice in their navigating what is a theoretically complex and changing methodological field." - Patrick Turner, London Metropolitan University An accessible, authoritative, non-nonsense guide to the key concepts in one of the most widely used methodologies in social science: Ethnography, this book: * Explores and summarises the basic and related issues in ethnography that are covered nowhere else in a single text. * Examines key topics like sampling, generalising, participant observation and rapport, as well as embracing new fields such as virtual, visual and multi-sighted ethnography and issues such as reflexivity, writing and ethics. * Presents each concept comprehensively yet critically, alongside relevant examples. This is not quite an encyclopaedia but far more than a dictionary. It is comprehensive yet brief. It is small and neat, easy to hold and flick through. It is what students and researchers have been waiting for.

International Migration and Social Theory by Karen O'Reilly International Migration and Social Theory, Hardback (June 2012)

Affecting millions across the globe every day, international migration encompasses a wide range of issues, from individual upheaval to government policy. Examining how migration has been theorized and using empirical examples to explore hot topics, this book shows how migration cuts to the heart of notions of identity, home and belonging.

Lifestyle Migration by Karen O'Reilly Lifestyle Migration, Hardback (October 2009)

Offers a holistic analysis of contemporary lifestyle migrations, exploring the expectations and aspirations which inform and drive migration alongside the realities of life within the destination. This title recognizes the structural conditions (and constraints) which frame lifestyle migration, laying the groundwork for intellectual enquiry.

British on the Costa Del Sol by Karen O'Reilly British on the Costa Del Sol, Hardback (August 2000)

This book is the first to study the British expatriate community in Spain and explodes popular stereotypes of 'Brits abroad'. This is instead a rich account of who migrates, their reasons for migration and the daily realities of expat life.

Author Biography - Karen O'Reilly

Karen O'Reilly is Professor of Sociology at Loughborough University. She has taught ethnographic and qualitative methods for many years around the world including the Essex Summer School in Social Science Data Collection and Analysis, and the Swiss Summer School in Lugano. She has spent 20 years on and off living among and learning from British people who move abroad in search of a better way of life. Sociologically, this has informed an interest in a broad range of themes, including ethnicity, identity and community; nations and nationalism; home and belonging; social exclusion; the informal economy; tourism-related migration; and friends and networks. Her interests have more recently turned to practice theories and their implications for ethnographic methodology. Karen is author of Ethnographic Methods (Routledge), Key Concepts in Ethnography (SAGE) and International Migration and Social Theory (Palgrave Macmillan), and co-editor of Lifestyle Migration: Expectations, Aspirations and Experiences (Ashgate).
