Over Researched Places: Towards a Critical and Reflexive Approach

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review

Abstract

The book explores the implications that research-density has on the people and places researched, on the researchers, on the data collected and knowledge produced, and on the theories that are developed.

It examines the effects that research-density has on the people and places researched, on the researchers, on the data collected and knowledge produced, and on the theories that are developed. By weaving together experiences from a variety of countries, and across disciplinary boundaries and research methods, the volume outlines the roots of over-research, where it comes from and what can be done about it.

The book will be useful for social science students and researchers working in ethnographic disciplines such as Human Geography, Anthropology, Urban Planning and Sociology and seeking to navigate the tricky ‘absent present’ of already existing research on their fields of exploration.
