Fieldwork with children

Front Cover
Sage Publications, 1998 - Social Science - 159 pages

While there is an expanding literature of qualitative studies with children, there is relatively little in that literature that examines the fieldwork process with them. Author Robyn Holmes looks at fieldwork with children from a number of perspectives and helps to address the needs of researchers working with children. Holmes lays out an overview for the study of children in the early chapters, discussing basic methodology and considering the school as the primary site for studying children. In later chapters she closely examines how a researcher's personal attributes, such as gender and ethnicity can and do effect the fieldwork process with children.

Straightforward and clear, Fieldwork with Children is a practical guide and will be an excellent resource for students and scholars involved in the study of children.
