Imaginative Inquiry: Innovative Approaches to Interdisciplinary Research
Interdisciplinary social sciences have remained largely committed to research methods and methodologies that hinge on simplistic dichotomies. Despite this historical and contemporary trend, there have been some notable advances in innovative approaches to method and methodology. This edited compilation of essays will chart some of these innovative trends. The aim of this book is to provide a guide for contemporary researchers to explore the social world in imaginative ways, by moving beyond the singular, definite, discipline-specific research approaches of the past towards the more flexible, creative research approaches of the present.
The editors seek original previously unpublished essays on innovative interdisciplinary methodologies and methods. This could include, but is not limited to, work that transcends traditional boundaries between: 1) quantitative and qualitative methods, 2) theory and method, 3) method and methodology, and 4) researcher and research participant. Contributors may approach the topic from any number of disciplinary, interdisciplinary, or multidisciplinary perspectives: sociology, education, history, political science, nursing, anthropology, health studies, economics, psychology, labour studies, criminology, criminal justice, media studies, women and gender studies.
Who should submit
Emerging and established scholars in the areas of innovative method and methodology. Co-authorship or team-based submissions are encouraged.
What to submit
The full text of a chapter (up to 15 pages double-spaced, including any illustrations and references) in Word (6th edition APA format).
The finished book will be published by Academica Press; Palo Alto, California http://academicapress.com/
