Reviews

In this essential new volume, Ellingson and Sotirin ask: What do data actually do? The authors land on multiple pragmatic potentials for what data can mean, and they present multiple possibilities for the utility of qualitative inquiry. I cannot wait to use this book in my qualitative analysis seminar. - Jimmie Manning, Ph.D. Chair and Professor, Communication Studies School of Social Justice & Research Studies University of Nevada, Reno Ellingson and Sotorin offer a conceptually rich and action-oriented model of data engagement, a must-read for qualitative researchers in a wide variety of research areas. The authors present a bold understanding of data as made and assembled illustrated with engaging examples, practical advice, and useful strategies. Much more than a how to methods text, Making Data in Qualitative Research is a reader-friendly resource that advances qualitative research in creative and critical ways. - Lynn M. Harter, Ph.D. Professor Co-Director Barbara Geralds Institute for Storytelling and Social Impact In this compelling and thought-provoking book, Ellingson and Sotirin invite us to stand within and alongside data, recognizing its agency and power to become something new every time we engage with it. Instead of asking What are data? the authors ask What do data do? Unimagined configurations take shape when we discover that fieldnotes have lively careers, recordings remain in flux, enlivened by new meanings across time and space, transcripts are never innocent, alive with political, cultural, and reflexive possibilities, and digital data circulates and transmutates through and across borders. Every chapter offers vivid exemplars of published studies that reveal data on the move , helping readers to engage with and imagine possibilities for their own research. By disrupting traditional representations of data, this book challenges each of us to become entangled, embodied, and vulnerable in our engagement with data and the imagination and playfulness it evokes. - Dr. Patricia Geist-Martin San Diego State University
