'If students and scholars interested in qualitative inquiry have felt that the field of qualitative research has come to a peaceful and dignified academic standstill, then this book will awaken them to a different reality. It brings the message that there is a storm rising on the qualitative horizon, but we do not know when it will hit us, from which direction or what its nature will be' - Nyhedsbrev The Qualitative Inquiry Reader offers a selection of landmark articles from the popular SAGE journal Qualitative Inquiry. These collected works introduce the necessary critical framework that will allow scholars and students to interpret cutting-edge work in the field of qualitative inquiry. The Reader includes: examples from across the behavioural and social sciences; is divided into five accessible sections: reflexive ethnography, autoethnography, poetics, performance narratives and assessing the text; reflects the ways in which contemporary researchers have implemented the narrative turn in their writing; and contains cutting-edge work by top scholars in the field.
