Drama education has been lacking a research methodology. This much needed text provides models constructed by leading researchers in the field and presented at the International Drama in Education Research Institute Conference in 2004. Each chapter describes a different research methodology, explains how it was applied to the practice and outlines how teachers and other researchers can employ it in their own contexts. Led by the editor's chapter on the context of research, the contributions include: The Process of Institute Research Stations by Philip Taylor; The Reflective Practitioner by Jonothan Neelands; Critical Ethnography by Kathleen Gallagher; Narrative Inquiry by Bellarie Zatzman; A case study by Joe Winston; Performance Ethnography by Jane Bacon; Post-structuralist Deconstruction by Ian McCormick; Feminist Methodology by Sharon Grady; The book will be essential reading for research students and teachers because it provides models and approaches that connect with the immediacy of their practice.
