We are global citizens trapped in a world we did not create. Our public institutions are under assault. Academics, media members, and everyday folks critical of the shifting public order are branded as ‘enemies of the state’ by right-wing media and elected officials alike.

Qualitative Inquiry and the Politics of Resistance takes as its mandate foregrounding, interrogating, imagining, and engaging in new ways of doing critical qualitative inquiry in these troubling times. Internationally renowned contributors write to resist, to celebrate community, to experiment with traditional and new methodologies, and to advance new ontologies and materialities. Together they seek to develop new understandings and exemplars concerning advocacy, inquiry and social justice concerns. And they share a commitment to change the world, to engage in ethical work that makes a positive difference. Topics include: embodiment, subjectivity, border crossing, positionality, praxis, and performance, as they relate to multiple understandings of resistance.

To that end, this book represents part of a global project committed to a politics of active and passive resistance, to non-violence; to bearing witness to injustice; refusing to be silenced; refusing to accept assaults on critical, interpretive inquiry; refusing to abandon the goal of social justice for all.
