Anthony Kwame Harrison

Understanding Qualitative Research

  • Situates ethnography within its original, anthropological context and highlights key anthropological principles that were important to its initial professionalization and subsequent evolution
  • Introduces the concept of ethnographic comportment-defined as an historically informed politics of position that impacts ethnographers' conduct and disposition-which serves as a standard for gauging and engaging ethnographic practices
  • Emphasizes the importance of ethnographic training and insists that contemporary ethnographers should understand themselves as part of (and therefore committed to advancing) a research and writing tradition
