Outsider Research: How White Writers Explore Native Issues, Knowledge and Experiences

Author: 
Dabulskis-Hunter, Susanne
Credentials: 
Ph.D, University of Toronto

Few monographs have studied the methodology and rationale of social science observation and field work from the point of view of the observed, the other. Professor Dabulskis-Hunter examines the power relationships and informational deformations that occur during fieldwork and research expeditions in Native America (both Canada and the USA). The negative effects of such knowledge production and the moral quandary of the observed and the exotic are skillfully described. The knowledge producer, almost always Euro-American and privileged, is discussed in light of methodologies, theoretical frameworks and critical pedagogy.

“…(a) much needed examination, clearly written and argued.”
Professor Ewan Patterson, UNE
