Handbook of Critical and Indigenous Methodologies

Norman K. Denzin, Yvonna S. Lincoln, Linda Tuhiwai Smith


The Handbook of Critical Methodologies covers everything from the history of critical and indigenous theory and how it came to inform and impact qualitative research and indigenous peoples to the critical constructs themselves, including race/diversity, gender representation (queer theory, feminism), culture, and politics to the meaning of “critical” concepts within specific disciplines (critical psychology, critical communication/mass communication, media studies, cultural studies, political economy, education, sociology, anthropology, history, etc. – all in an effort to define emancipatory research and explore what critical qualitative research can do for social change and social justice.
