As authors of meritorious and award-winning dissertations, they provide insights into the challenging process of crafting interpretive methods of dissertation inquiry. In addition, they relate their struggles to claim for themselves the authority to imagine creative representations of their research. Faculty and students who are looking for theoretic principles as well as good examples of interpretive dissertations will find this book invaluable.

From the Back Cover:

"The scholarly and practical imagination is likely the most valuable tool of educational researchers, and of educators generally. Garman, Piantanida, and colleagues offer ideas, inspiration, courage, and illustrations for aspiring educational researchers to write innovative, interpretive representations of edu-cational experience. We need more dissertations that explore diverse ways of knowing and modes of expressing insights about education. I commend the authors of this book for showing how to do just that." William H. Schubert, Professor of Education and Chair of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Illinois at Chicago

"Researchers seeking to gain expertise in this narrative interpretative approach may find, in reading these joyful accounts of collaborative search, discovery, and creation, an encouraging-even empowering-invitation to address their own research questions with similar concerns and energy, and, in turn, craft their own individual text in dialogue with critical readers on the way. This is an elegant and literary gold mine of narrative information for educational re-searchers, faculty, and students seeking real engagement with interpretative hermeneutic approaches to educational research." Peter Willis, Senior Lecturer, Division of Education, Arts and Social Sciences, School of Education, University of South Australia
