Description - Research and Inequality by Carole Truman
It has been noted by researchers from a number of backgrounds that the dominant research paradigms of social research have frequently failed to represent the viewpoints of many marginalised groups. The authors of this collection confront this imbalance by looking at how issues such as ethnicity, sexual orientation and identity, disability, gender and ethnicity and health and old age might be addressed in research conducted among groups of people who may often be the objects of research but seldom have any control over what is said about them. Written by people form a wide range of backgrounds, cultures and nationalities, the chapters explore ways in which issues of social diversity and division within the research process might be addressed. While considering whether they might be addressed through an emancipatory research paradigm, the book also examines the philosophical tenets and methodological implications of such an approach.
