Title Ytterst berörd - sällan hörd: Att som forskare lyssna till berättelser
Author(s) Lang, Lena ; Ohlsson, Lisbeth
Date 2009
English abstract
The article puts forward some aspects of the complexity in research methods concerning listening to the voices of people who are seldom heard. A holistic point of departure, including a perspective of rights, is presented and reflected in two main themes; research and wholeness and person and wholeness. The procedures in two different studies are then illustrated in relation to a number of common issues. The referred studies are describing encounters with persons who aim at various educational contexts for young people and adults. While one of the research studies takes its point of departure from encounters with persons applying to municipal adult education, the other study does so from conversations with persons in transition between upper secondary school and university studies. Students who apply to education in adult age have a life- and learning history and as a consequence, narrative approaches are used in the studies. In the closing part of the article some reflections are made concerning differences and similarities in the studies with respect to point of departure, approach, procedure as well as some of the challenges that the researchers have come across.
