Visual methods: Innovation, decoration or distraction?

Whether they capture the still or moving image, visual methods are the oldest new methods in qualitative research. Anthropologists from Malinowski (1929) onwards have included photographs in field reports, and in later decades made films about different cultures (Ball and Smith 1992).

Computer assisted qualitative data analysis software (CAQDAS): A personal view

Computer software is increasingly used to assist in the analysis of ‘qualitative’, particularly ethnographic, data. It is widely agreed to help in organising and controlling data.

Whose Method is it Anyway? Researching space, setting, and practice

Bernstein: Codes and Social Class

While accepting that the concept of restricted code has a troubled history that resulted in Bernstein being associated with deficit models of working-class life, it is argued that the concept should be re-imagined rather than abandoned. Bernstein’s early work refers to restricted code as a form of condensed shorthand established through familiarity that was not…
