Doing Qualitative Research: Circles Within Circles
This book explores the experiences of becoming and continuing to develop as a qualitative researcher. It grows out of the very research process it explains, exemplifies and provides guidance for. Specifically, it integrates a focus on understanding both the cognitive processes involved in engaging the methods of qualitative research and the affective feel engendered by these same procedures; entering, observing, interviewing, analyzing, reporting and reflecting. The premise is that this cognitive/affective mesh is an essential qualitative research reality and, as such, must be highlighted, better understood and harnessed.
