Shane, the Lone Ethnographer

Shane, The Lone Ethnographer


Shane, The Lone Ethnographer, Second Edition, covers introductory material related to ethnographic foundations, study design, theory and methods. It is a general text that could be useful for any advanced undergraduate or graduate student looking to familiarize themselves with the step-by-step how-tos of ethnographic inquiry. The book begins with the foundations of qualitative inquiry, including theoretical frameworks and ethnographic design. It the moves on to a detailed discussion of general ethnographic methods including interviews, participant observation and artifact collection. This is followed by an overview of data analysis and standards of rigor. The book concludes with a careful discussion of ethnographic writing, final reports and tools for the writing life of any ethnographer. oThis is a second edition of the groundbreaking first ethnographic how-to comic, produced by award-winning artist and ethnographer Sally Campbell Galman oThis offers a comprehensive survey of ethnographic foundations, study design and methods, presented with a sense of humor and helpful drawings, diagrams, lists and charts to present complex information in a new light. oStudents find the black and white drawings engaging and even use the text as a `coloring book' to highlight sections, jot down questions and fill-in-as-they-learn oThe book synthesizes a broad range of writing on the topic of ethnographic methods, giving students a flexible frame upon which to build as they delve more deeply into the material. By focusing on the basics, with multiple entry points and references to build outward in diverse directions, the book is unique in its flexibility and wide possibilities for use. oWhile the first edition was focused on ethnography within the field of educational research and the paradigms driving that particular area of inquiry, this second edition is widely interdisciplinary and cross-field. It could be useful for a range of students with a range of research problems. oThe use of the comic format makes this text unusually accessible for a variety of readers and learners without sacrificing complexity or the depth of the material. oThe book draws from a range of new, updated sources to address what new students of ethnographic methods need to know today. The classic pieces remain the same, but the rest is overhauled and updated.
