On Writing Educational Ethnographies

The Art of Collusion

  • Jean Conteh
  • Eve Gregory
  • Chris Kearney
  • Aura Mor
Here is an exciting departure from existing volumes on educational research methods. This book focuses on the “writing” of an ethnographic dissertation and provides examples of successful ethnographic studies that have earned PhDs. It is a core reader for students pursuing ethnographic research at Masters, Ed.D or PhD levelProfessor Eve Gregory is Director of Studies in the Department of Educational Studies at London University s Goldsmiths College. The other authors have all been her part-time M.Phil/PhD students and all have used ethnographic methods in their fields of culture, language, literacy and identity. And all three have classroom experience and a fascination for their research topics.The book provides an overview of the value of an ethnographic approach to researching issues of diversity in education and offers models of writing for each stage of the work. The authors relate how each went about writing their study and describe the difficulties they encountered. This makes compelling reading and offers a moving personal and professional rationale for ethnography as a research approach. The result is an excellent model and guide for new researchers, especially inexperienced writers or part-time students such as teachers on how to go about writing M.Phil/PhDs, EdDs, MA or M.Research dissertations.
