This book brings together the theory and practice of anti-oppressive approaches to social science research. It is a work that will have a place in the classroom, as well as on the desks of researchers in agencies, governments, and private consulting practices. The first section of the book is devoted to the ontological and epistemological considerations involved in such research, including theorising the self of the researcher. The second section of the book offers exemplars across a range of methodologies, including institutional ethnography, narrative autobiography, storytelling and indigenous research, and participatory action research. 'Research as Resistance' is unique in that it describes both theoretical foundations and practical applications, and because all of the featured researchers occupy marginalised locations.
