Culturally Responsive Methodologies puts forward a new position from which to navigate our research in the hope that we can contribute to a more respectful and humble way of working with all peoples. These new methodologies require the researcher to develop relationships that may enable them to intimately come to respect and know the "Other" with whom they seek to study. Such a process of reciprocity challenges traditional research notions of distance and neutrality, opening up instead streams of research that call for engagement through the establishment of relational discourses. Each chapter shows how researchers find, discover, and invent methodology that benefits both the researcher and subject, from their insider knowledge and from the epistemology of others. 

This book is ideally suited for all those involved in qualitative research work including researchers, students, teacher educators and educators  throughout the world who share an interest in culturally responsive research and practice.
