Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Proposes feminist research principles to assist in making informed decisions to address ethical dilemmas that arise in research and teaching.

"In this engaging and well-written book, Gesa Kirsch makes a cogent and persuasive plea that feminist researchers not abandon ethnography and other forms of qualitative research, especially since more and more women and minority scholars are contributing substantively to feminist research in composition. This book is a must-read for all feminist compositionists interested in qualitative research." -- Lynn Worsham, University of South Florida, coeditor of Feminism and Composition: In Other Words

By addressing ethical dilemmas in a wide range of situations--qualitative research studies, interview studies, studies of classroom practice, studies of student writing, and feminist work--Gesa Kirsch explores some important questions: Can researchers represent the experiences of others without misrepresenting, misappropriating, or distorting their realities? What are researchers' responsibilities toward research participants, students, and readers? What ethical principles can guide researchers when they encounter participants who share highly confidential information or work with institutions who wish to conceal relevant information?

"Kirsch's balance and blend of her own argument, her own experiences, and the argument and experience of others is wonderful. All those various voices (hers, other research participants, other researchers) and various rhetorical genres (argument, narration, exposition, description) work so well together. This is a book long-needed, especially in rhetoric and composition--an in-depth critique of the key parts of the qualitative research process and the ethical dilemmas therein. Kirsch's ability to ask the hard questions about an approach or perspective even as she approves it is remarkable." -- Brenda Jo Brueggemann, Ohio State University
