Reading an Academic Journal is Like Doing Ethnography
Keywords: ethnography of social sciences, publications, community of scholars, academic rigour
AbstractOne view of doing ethnography is that it is like trying to construct a reading of a manuscript. What follows is a text which turns that definition around. Thus the proposition here is that "constructing a reading of a series of manuscripts—a journal—is like doing ethnography". The article itself is an ethnographic explication of the numerous texts contained in one edition of Studies in Higher Education. The aim is to provide an account of the texts therein in order to judge, from a Rortyan, pragmatist perspective, whether or not these stories are good for us. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0401408
