Hot on the heels of yesterday’s @physiotalk Tweet-chat about philosophy and physiotherapy, comes the latest edition of Qualitative Inquiry.
For those of you who don’t know it, QI has a strong focus on innovative and experimental qualitative material (follow this link to visit the journal’s website).
This month’s edition focuses on the life and work of Laurel Richardson – a major force in areas like autoethnography (where the researcher’s experience becomes the data) and creative writing as a research process. The papers are all about embodiment, pain and disability and have real application to physiotherapy practice.Ronald J. Berger, Carla Corroto and Julie White (2014).
