Abstract

Troubling Terrains engages with the idea of educational research as locations, as places, as sites, as spaces -- as terrains. It explores multiple ways in which these terrains may be contentious, contested and controversial and shows how such terrains may be troubling. This book pursues one of the ambivalences of educational research. Does educational research help to replicate existing sociocultural privilege? Or does it work to disrupt that privilege and to construct alternative understandings of current issues? In this process, the book presents tactics for traversing and transforming the troubling and sometimes troubled terrains of contemporary educational research.
