Representation And The Text

Re-framing The Narrative Voice

eBook - 1997
Rate this:
This book focuses on representations of contested realities in qualitative research. The authors examine two separate, but interrelated, issues: criticisms of how researchers use "voice", and suggestions about how to develop experimental voices that expand the range of narrative strategies.

Changing relationships between researchers and respondents dictate alterations in textual representations -- from the "view from nowhere" to the view from a particular location, and from the omniscient voice authors have struggled with voice in to the polyvocality of communities of individuals. Examples of new representations and textual experiments provide models for how some their texts, and in so doing, broaden who they and we mean by "us".
