Reconceptualizing Qualitative Research: Methodologies without Methodology calls for qualitative research that is complex, situational, theoretically situated, and yet productive. Author Mirka Koro-Ljungberg challenges ideas about data, research design, and researcher responsibility that are often taken for granted, provoking readers to rethink beliefs, paradigms, processes, and methodological frameworks. Written in a clear, conversational style, the book compels readers to think about qualitative research differently—often in creative ways—and to continuously question existing narratives and dogmas.

This book aims to explore what queer thinking and new materialist feminist thought might offer the field of sexuality education. It argues that queer theory in education might be queered further by drawing on feminist new materialism and extending itself to subjects beyond sexual and gender identities/issues, including a focus on ‘things’. Allen explores how new materialism as a form of queer thinking, might be brought to bear on other important issues of social justice such as, classroom cultural and religious diversity.

Reconceptualizing Bias in Teaching Qualitative Research Methods

Researchers who have been prepared in positivist traditions to social research frequently equate "subjectivity" with "bias, " which is viewed as both a problem to be managed and a threat to the credibility of a study. Teachers of qualitative research methods are familiar with questions about "subjectivity" that invoke "bias" from newcomers to qualitative research. This article revisits the methodological literature to examine how bias has been understood in qualitative inquiry. We argue for an approach to teaching qualitative research methods that assists students to make sense of long-standing and new debates related to "bias" and reconceptualize it in relation to their work. We provide recommendations for how teachers of qualitative inquiry might do this and illustrate these strategies with examples drawn from methodological reflections completed by a graduate student taking qualitative coursework.

Es ist vielmehr die intellektuelle Erfahrung einer verstörenden und beunruhigenden Präsenz, die den eigenen Blick auf die Gegenwart durchkreuzt. Diese Leseerfahrung wird jeder machen, der in diesen Band mit Aufsätzen, Interviews und kleineren Beiträgen von Gilles Deleuze eintaucht. So zeigt sich etwa die Nähe seiner kritischen Stimme zu aktuellen politischen Debatten, wie sie von Slavoj Žižek oder Noam Chomsky bis hin zu Michael Hardt und Toni Negri geführt werden. Auch seine Überlegungen zur Philosophie des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts, zum zeitgenössischen Kino und zur Filmtheorie, zur Psychoanalyse oder zur Literatur haben ihr Korrelat in der Gegenwart. Krieg, Pazifismus, Toleranz, Revolution, Drogen, Befreiung und Kritik - das sind Deleuze' Stichworte zur Erkundung des Heute, die nichts von ihrer Sprengkraft verloren haben.
