Post-Critical Methodologies : The Science Possible After the Critiques: The Selected Works of Patti
About this item
In the World Library of Educationalists series, international experts themselves compile career-long collections of what they judge to be their finest pieces – extracts from books, key articles, salient research findings, major theoretical and practical contributions – so the world can read them in a single manageable volume. Readers will be able to follow the themes and strands and see how their work contributes to the development of the field.
(Post)Critical Methodologies forms a chronology through the texts and concepts that span Patti Lather’s career. Examining (post)critical, feminist, and poststructural theories, here Lather’s work is organized into thematic sections resulting in a series of revolutionary pieces that span her 35 years of study in this field. These sections include original contributions formed from Lather’s feminism and critical theory background. They contain her most cited works on feminist research and pedagogy, and form a collection of both early and recent writings on the post and post-post critical, with a focus on policy studies and the future of post-qualitative work.
With a new focus on the implications for qualitative inquiry and the call for scientifically-based research in education, this compelling overview moves through Lather’s progressive thoughts on bridging the gap between quantitative and qualitative research in education and provides a unique commentary on some of the most important issues in higher education over the last 30 years. This compilation of Lather‘s contribution to educational thinking will prove compelling reading to all those engaged in student learning in higher education worldwide.
