Kvalitative metoder belyser, hvordan mennesker oplever og beretter om verden, hvordan de agerer, og hvordan menneskelige fænomener fremtræder og udvikler sig i komplekse sammenhænge. Metoderne er på forskellig vis egnede til at beskrive, forstå, fortolke og analysere den menneskelige erfarings mange nuancer og kvaliteter. De kvalitative metoder har været i hastig vækst i human- og samfundsvidenskaberne i de seneste ca. 25 år, og forskere har på tværs af faggrænser udviklet et væld af forskellige teknikker, tilgange og perspektiver.I denne 3. udgave er samtlige kapitler reviderede og opdaterede. Bogen inkluderer et nyt kapitel om kvalitative forløbsstudier samt et nyt kapitel om uddannelse i kvalitativ metode. I takt med udbredelsen af kvalitative metoder og undersøgelser er det mere vigtigt end nogensinde at udvikle det kvalitative forskningshåndværk. Denne bog tilbyder et overblik over typiske, kvalitative metoder, og hvordan disse anvendes i dansk og international kontekst.Bogens 30 kapitler giver en indføring i de kvalitative metoders teori, men lægger først og fremmest vægt på konkret at beskrive den håndværksmæssige kunnen, som præger indsigtsgivende kvalitative studier. Bogen er velegnet for både studerende og erfarne kvalitative forskere.Svend Brinkmann er professor ved Aalborg Universitet.Lene Tanggaard er rektor på Designskolen i Kolding og professor ved Aalborg Universitet.
Talking readers through each step in the research process, and providing practical advice based on years of experience, this text presents the practical realities of doing fieldwork
Narratives in Social Science Research introduces students to the use of narrative methodology as a research tool. It offers a useful and rigorous framework for the application of these devices within qualitative research.
While this book can be seen as joining the discussion on globalization and its paradoxical character, it is unique in its rich collection of cases and its frame of reference consisting of a combination of organization theory, new institutionalism and sociology of translation. The focus is not so much on organizations but on organizing, which is global both in its scope and in its imitation of global models. This book shows what is travelling and how; it moves between countries and disciplines.Advances in Organization Studies, Vol. 13Series editors: Stewart R. Clegg & Ralph E. StableinAdvances in Organization Studies is a channel for cutting edge theoretical and empirical works of high quality, that contributes to the field of organizational studies. The series welcomes thought-provoking ideas, new perspectives and neglected topics from researchers within a wide range of disciplines and geographical locations.
Management of big cities is a relatively unresearched area, as compared to city planning and city governance. A study of Warsaw city management reveals the transformation process typically found in European countries in political and economic transition. In A City Reframed, Czarniawska conceptualises city management as an "e;action-net"e; under transformation, where three types of action are in focus: "e;muddling through"e;, or coping with daily problems; "e;reframing"e;, or changing the frame of interpretation of the world in order to take successful action; and "e;anchoring"e;, the testing of new ideas on potentially involved parties in order to secure cooperation or minimize resistance. "e;Muddling through"e; is central to management in Warsaw, as it no doubt has always been: it is this "e;muddling through"e; that makes cities function. The specificity of the Warsaw picture is its demand for "e;reframing"e; and numerous and varied attempts have been made to achieve a "e;change of frame"e;. They were sometimes successful, sometimes not, the skill of anchoring only slowly emerging from the most recent past, with the sediments of the old regimes an obvious obstacle. The study pinpoints the phenomena central to the construction of the action-net of city management, and traces its further connections (or lack of such), both temporally and spatially.
Narratives in Social Science Research introduces students to the use of narrative methodology as a research tool. It offers a rigorous framework for the application of these devices within qualitative research. The book provides: An historical overview of the development of the narrative approach within the social sciences A guide to how narrative methods can be applied in fieldwork An explanation of how to incorporate a narrative approach within a research project Guidelines for interpreting collected or produced narratives A student-focused approach - key arguments and methods are illustrated by case-studies and lists of further reading.Written in an accessible and engaging manner, this detailed text will be a useful resource for researchers and students taking courses in qualitative research across a variety of social disciplines.
This clear, straightforward textbook embraces the practical reality of actually doing fieldwork. It tackles the common problems faced by new researchers head on, offering sensible advice and instructive case studies from the author's own experience. Barbara Czarniawska takes us on a master class through the research process, encouraging us to revisit the various facets of the fieldwork research and helping us to reframe our own experiences. Combining a conversational style of writing with an impressive range of empirical examples she takes the reader from planning and designing research to collecting and analyzing data all the way to writing up and disseminating findings. This is a sophisticated introduction to a broad range of research methods and methodologies; it will be of great interest to anyone keen to revisit social research in the company of an expert guide.
