While there is an expanding literature of qualitative studies with children, there is relatively little that examines the actual fieldwork process with them. This book looks at fieldwork with children from a number of perspectives, and helps to address the needs of researchers working with children.
Robyn M. Holmes overviews 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 examines closely how a researchers personal attributes, such as gender and ethnicity, can and do effect research with children.
