Research Methodologies for Drama Education
Trentham Books, 2006 - Education - 182 pages
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 in this collection from across the Anglophone world describes a different research methodology. It explains how the methodology 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.
