Description - Feminist Dilemmas in Qualitative Research by Jane Catherine Ribbens
This volume explores the interplay between theory, epistemology and practical methodological decisions in research, and the challenges that the resultant dilemmas present to feminist researchers. Other themes are: the interaction between "law" and "expert" knowledge; how researchers make sense of contradictory narratives as part of academic research; the relationship between women researchers' private/lay practice and public/expert knowledge. The contributors consider ways to achieve high standards of reflexivity and openness in the strategic choices made during empirical work, both during the data collection phase, and during its analysis and writing up.
