Qualitative researchers increasingly flock to social justice research to move beyond academic discourse and aid marginalized communities and groups. This is the first textbook to address the methods of conducting qualitative research using a social justice paradigm. The book addresses the differences that a social justice stance requires from the researcher, then discusses how major qualitative methodologies are employed to create social justice in both the process and products of qualitative research. In this book-chapters cover grounded theory, phenomenology, ethnography, participatory action research, and other key qualitative designs;-methods chapters are written by experts in that methodology;-case studies illustrate show this style of research in action;-material is tightly organized and edited for course use although there are multiple authors.

This book presents original happiness research from and about a region that shows unexpectedly high levels of happiness. Even when Latin American countries cannot be classified as high-income countries their population do enjoy, on average, high happiness levels. The book draws attention to some important factors that contribute to the happiness of people, such as: relational values, human relations, solidarity networks, the role of the family, and the availability and gratifying using of leisure time. In a world where happiness is acquiring greater relevance as a final social and personal aim both the academic community and the social-actors and policy-makers community would benefit from Happiness Research in Latin America.

Voice in Qualitative Inquiry is a critical response to conventional, interpretive, and critical conceptions of voice in qualitative inquiry. A select group of contributors focus collectively on the question, "What does it mean to work the limits of voice?" from theoretical, methodological, and interpretative positions, and the result is an innovative challenge to traditional notions of voice. The thought-provoking book will shift qualitative inquiry away from uproblematically engaging in practices and interpretations that limit what "counts" as voice and therefore data. The loss and betrayal of comfort and authority when qualitative researchers work the limits of voice will lead to new disruptions and irruptions in making meaning from data and, in turn, will add inventive and critical dialogue to the conversation about voice in qualitative inquiry. Toward this end, the book will specifically address the following objectives: To promote an examination of how voice functions to communicate in qualitative research To expose the excesses and instabilities of voice in qualitative research To present theoretical, methodological, and interpretative implications that result in a problematizing of voice To provide working examples of how qualitative methodologists are engaging the multiple layers of voice and meaning To deconstruct the epistemological limits of voice that circumscribe our view of the world and the ways in which we make meaning as researchers This compelling collection will challenge those who conduct qualitative inquiry to think differently about how they collect, analyze, and represent meaning using the voices of others, as well as their own.

What is evidence in qualitative inquiry and how is it evaluated? What is true or false in research is strongly influenced by socially defined criteria and by the politics of academia. In providing an alternative to conservative science, qualitative researchers are often victimized by these politics. The use of qualitative evidence within the policy arena is also subject to social and political factors. Within qualitative inquiry itself, evidence is defined differently in different discoursesalaw, medicine, history, cultural, or performance studies. The interdisciplinary, international group of contributors to this volume address these questions in an attempt to create evidential criteria for qualitative work. Sponsored by the International Center for Qualitative Inquiry.

English summary: English summary: Theology and Science tend to appear as an irreconcilable contrast, especially in the media. Most times the cases of Galilei and Darwin are mentioned to demonstrate the retreat of the church facing a triumphant science. In the work presented here, Andreas Losch elucidates this conflict in the light of modern historical science and reveals it as a myth. As a position opposite to this conflict model he presents the perspective of Cambridge physicist and priest John C. Polkinghorne, who assumes the consonance of the disciplines. Which other alternatives are there beyond conflict? To answer this question Losch presents the well-known typology of Ian G. Barbour (also physicist and theologian), who portrays three further models as possible relationships of theology and science besides conflict: the independence approach, dialogue or an integration of the disciplines. An excursus compares this typological model - which is characteristic for the Anglo-American sphere - with the more continental European orientated typology of the German theologian Jurgen Hubner. What these different geographical roots mean will become clear throughout the course of the work. The Bible has to be taken seriously, but not literally. Losch asks about the definition and meaning of critical realism in science, philosophy and theology. Following this, he presents two prominent German approaches to the dialogue between science and theology and compares them with the Anglo-American model on the basis of critical realism. The approaches to be compared are the theory of time by the physicist A.M.K Muller und the Gestaltkreis concept by the physician and philosopher Viktor von Weizsacker. The conclusion at the end of the work will integrate the different models into a highly original proposal for the dialogue of the disciplines. German description: Theologie und Naturwissenschaften, sind das nicht Gegensatze? So erscheinen sie zwar in der medialen Offentlichkeit, besonders die Falle Galilei und Darwin werden dann genannt, um daran das Ruckzugsgefecht der Kirche gegenuber einer triumphierenden Wissenschaft zu illustrieren. Andreas Losch stellt den Konflikt jedoch als einen modernen Mythos dar. Er prasentiert den Ansatz des Cambridger Physikers und Priesters John C. Polkinghorne, der von einer Ubereinstimmung der Disziplinen ausgeht. Welche Alternativen gibt es jenseits der Konflikte ausserdem? Dazu stellt Losch die ubersichtliche Einteilung Ian G. Barbours vor, der als Verhaltnisbestimmungen von Theologie und Naturwissenschaften neben dem Konflikt auch ein unabhangiges Nebeneinander, einen Dialog oder eine Integration der beiden Disziplinen fur moglich halt. Andreas Losch bleibt nicht bei einer blossen Wiedergabe Barbours stehen, sondern fragt, worauf seine Uberlegungen beruhen. Er kommt zu dem Schluss, dass ein sogenannter kritischer Realismus die Grundlage dafur darstellt. Der Autor fragt nach der jeweiligen Definition und Bedeutung des kritischen Realismus in Wissenschaft, Philosophie und Theologie. Anschliessend stellt Losch zwei prominente deutschsprachige Ansatze zum Dialog zwischen Theologie und Naturwissenschaften dar und vergleicht sie mit dem angelsachsischen Modell auf Basis dieses kritischen Realismus: die Zeittheorie des Physikers A.M.K Muller und das Gestaltkreiskonzept des Arztphilosophen Viktor von Weizsacker. Das Fazit am Schluss der Arbeit integriert die verschiedenen Modelle in einem originellen Vorschlag fur das Gesprach der Disziplinen. Zwei Exkurse bieten zusatzliche Analysen der Uberlegungen des Theologen Jurgen Hubner und des Wissenschaftsphilosophen Michael Polanyi zum Thema.
