These provocative new essays redefine the goals, methods, and assumptions of qualitative and ethnographic research in composition studies, making evident not only the crucial importance of ethnographic research, but also its resilience. As Ethnography Unbound makes evident, critical ethnographers are retheorizing their methodologies in ways that both redefine ethnographic practices and values and, at the same time, have begun to liberate ethnographic practices from the often-disabling stronghold of postmodern critique. Showing how ethnography works through dialogic processes and moves toward political ends, this collection opens the doors to rethinking ethnographic research in composition studies.

Review quote

""Ethnography Unbound is a marvelously diverse collection of pieces that help us think carefully about ethical practices as we interview, analyze, interpret, and write about human behavior and teach our students to do likewise ... This volume offers ways to think about theory, argue that definitions and underlying assumptions, reflect on our research practices, and plan practical applications for our classrooms."
