Writing & Representing Qualitative Research

Writing & Representing Qualitative Research

SAGE Publications, August 31, 2021

This book addresses foundational areas of qualitative writing (such as journal articles and dissertations), aesthetic representations (including poetry and autoethnography), publishing, and reflexivity in representation in one practical and engaging text based on real experiences.

Author Maria K.E. Lahman draws on her experiences as a qualitative research professor and writing instructor, and as someone who has published widely in scholarly journals, employing both traditional and more innovative forms of writing.

The first part of the book covers writing tips; how to represent data; how to write a qualitative thematic journal article; how to write a qualitative dissertation; and provides guidance on the publication process.

The second part encourages the qualitative researcher to move beyond traditional forms of writing and consider how qualitative research can be represented more aesthetically: as poems, autoethnographies, and visually.

The book concludes with a chapter on reflexivity in research representations. Throughout, the author provides vivid examples from her own work, and that of graduate students and colleagues.

REVIEWS

What readers have to say

One of the best books I have read in qualitative research. I wish I had this book when I was a doctoral student, or in the early stages of my academic career. Not only is it good for those in doctoral programs, it is appropriate for mentoring those in the early stages of the journey to tenure.

Lahman’s text is both a sound guide to the practical elements of qualitative inquiry, as well as a compelling overview of the eclectic, ethical, and engaged landscape of the contemporary field. This book is a true invitation to emerging researchers, calling for them to both create strong work and to dream new practices into being.

The Publish and Persevere Podcast


Honing Qualitative Research Accounts

In this podcast, I challenge the assumption that academic science writing, in general, is quality writing and suggest that it is instead more properly understood as a dominant form in higher education. A reason this form continues to dominate is that in the high-pressure world of academia we do not have the time to hone our craft.


Reading, Writing, Revision in Qualitative Research

In this podcast, I challenge the assumption that academic science writing, in general, is quality writing and suggest that it is instead more properly understood as a dominant form in higher education.

Writing and Representing Qualitative Research

In this episode related to the content of my book I review why I thought it was important to write a book on Qualitative Research Writing and features of the book. Future podcasts will cover topics such as writing qualitative dissertations, journal articles, research poetry, autoethnography, representing visuals, reflexivity in research accounts, and more.
