Book launch: 'Thinking with Theory in Qualitative Research'

Please join the Centre for Creative-Relational Inquiry for this online book launch of the second edition of 'Thinking with Theory in Qualitative Research', published by Routledge. There will be comments from the authors, Alecia Jackson and Lisa Mazzei, responses to the book from/by CCRI doctoral students, further discussion and probably more.

The publisher's blurb for this fabulous book reads:

"Thinking with Theory in Qualitative Research: Second Edition demonstrates how to enact various philosophical concepts in practices of inquiry, effectively opening up the process of thought in qualitative studies.

Thinking with Theory in Qualitative Research functions as a refusal of pregiven method, intensifying creativity, experimentation, and newness. Readers are invited into the threshold of theory to traverse philosophers and their concepts, reorienting conventional approaches to inquiry. Each chapter presents a thinking with process as a way of reading intensively through plugging in performative accounts of two first-generation academic women to philosophical concepts from Derrida, Spivak, Foucault, Butler, Barad, and Deleuze and Guattari. This book is a deliberate attempt to unsettle what is expected to be represented or recognized in terms of both meaning and method in traditional practices of qualitative research, which become unproductive and untenable in this different image of thought."
