We have a new edited collection out!

We're both very happy to announce that Researching New Literacies: Design, Theory and Data in Sociocultural Investigation is now out. This is a collection that addresses a number of themes that we feel rather strongly about; including the importance of demystifying the qualitative research process, recognizing the messiness of conducting research--especially in relation to new literacies, and the need for how-to accounts grounded in practice and that target newbie researchers.  We are deeply grateful to our contributing authors for dealing with all of these things in their rich accounts of their research processes!

From the back cover:
This book provides an expansive guide for designing and conducting robust qualitative research across a diverse range of purposes concerned with understanding new literacies in theory and in practice. It is based on the idea that one of the best ways of learning how to do good research is by closely following the approaches taken by excellent researchers. This volume brings together a group of internationally reputed qualitative researchers who have investigated new literacies from a sociocultural perspective. These contributors offer "under the hood" accounts of how they have adapted existing research approaches and, where appropriate, developed new ones to frame their research theoretically and conceptually, collected and analyzed their data, and discussed their analytic results in order to achieve their research purposes. Each chapter, based on a substantial and successful study undertaken by the researchers, addresses the research process from one or more of the following emphases: theory and design, data collection, and data analysis and interpretation. Core elements discussed in each chapter include research purposes and questions; theoretical and conceptual framing; data collection and analysis; research findings and implications; and limitations, glitches, and difficulties experienced in the research process.

The only thing we're sad about is the nose bleed cost of the book...  This was a visceral shock for us.

I was very impressed by this post, this site has always been pleasant news. Thank you very much for such an interesting post. Keep working, great job! In my free time, I like play game: vex3game.com. What about you?

I am happy to find this post very useful for me

I'm puzzled with lots of exercises. I was afraid I could not do the right time despite my hard work. I need a support person.

Alot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that I'm interested in, but I'm most definately interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know. Nice! thank you so much! Thank you for sharing.
