Articulating with Difficulty
Research Voices in Inclusive Education
PUBLISHER: SAGE Publications, Limited
Also available at Amazon.com
`Articulating with Difficulty is an excellent collection and comes highly recommended. It follows Peter Clough and Len Barton's earlier and controversial collection, Making Difficulties (1995), and draws on a wide range of perspectives in disability, inclusive education and Special Education Needs (SEN) research to tease out key issues on "voice".... All contributors share a willingness to engage seriously with challenges thrown down by disabled academics and activists; that they do from different standpoints is another strength of this collection' - Disability & Society
This volume addresses the issue of `voice' in special education research; the voices of the researchers as well as those of the `researched', and the ways in which research mediates identities. It follows on from the well-known and controversial Making Difficulties, also edited by Peter Clough and Len Barton.
The contributors address, among other things: the question of overt and subtle power relations within the research context; the issues of `voice' in emancipatory research; and the view that a more democratic approach to research is made difficult because of the individualized, competitive work culture of higher education and research production.
