The Ph D Mindset Book Excerpt:

This book will explain the doctoral journey, the researcher’s orientation, personal challenges, and process pathway for successful completion. This book will examine doctoral studies' motivation, build a compelling research argument, decide how to structure a thesis/dissertation, remain on task, and expedite the process while maintaining high-quality standards. This book will explain how a Ph.D. candidate should start the process, stay focused on the tasks, separate passion from the process, understand the challenges, and overcome them. We will explain how a Ph.D. mindset should adjust to the processes rather than entrenched in a passion that may not match the process's realities. Globally, the need for completing doctoral studies is growing. However, prospective doctoral candidates do not always have access to experienced academe who can aid and provide guidance. This book will include the necessary thought process and supportive guidelines along the doctoral journey enabling the delivery of a doctoral thesis/dissertation with more ease. Ph.D. candidates will use the book for its theoretical and practical insights, explaining each challenge along the doctoral journey with relevant examples. The book will have a fourfold purpose, a thought initiator, a process guide, practical support, and a reference book on specific parts of the doctoral journey. It also includes essays of successful Ph.D. candidates and lessons learned.

Introduction to Intersectional Qualitative Research Book Excerpt:

Introduction to Intersectional Qualitative Research, by Jennifer Esposito and Venus Evans-Winters, introduces students and new researchers to the basic aspects of qualitative research including research design, data collection, and analysis, in a way that allows intersectional concerns to be infused throughout the research process. Esposito and Evans-Winters infuse their combined forty years of experience conducting and teaching intersectional qualitative research in this landmark book, the first of its kind to address intersectionality and qualitative research jointly for audiences new to both. The book’s premise is that race and gender matter, and that racism and sexism are institutionalized in all aspects of life, including research. Each chapter opens with a vignette about a struggling researcher emphasizing that reflecting on your mistakes is an important part of learning. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter help instructors generate dialogue in class or in groups. Introduction to Intersectional Qualitative Research makes those identities and structures central to the task of qualitative study.

Care Based Methodologies Book Excerpt:

Care-Based Methodologies reimagines relationships between researchers and youth participants in school-based research. The book calls attention to care-based methodologies as essential to qualitative and ethnographic research in schools, particularly when participants are youth from nondominant communities. While researchers come to schools seeking to understand youths' lived experiences and become implicated in the quotidian rhythms of their lives, it is rare that they receive training on how to navigate the complex interpersonal dynamics and relationships that take shape during long-term school research. How can researchers ensure that they care for the wellbeing of youth, not just the stories and data collected from them? How do researchers maneuver the various roles they may come to play in youth's lives over the course of, and beyond, a study with care? What happens when scholars transgress the traditional power dynamics of researcher-participant relationships to walk with youth in their research? This book illustrates the possibilities for conducting rigorous and responsible research that simultaneously improves our understanding of youth's lives, cares for their wellbeing, and works toward dismantling the systems that oppress them. The editors of the volume offer an opening chapter that articulates how researchers can practice care-based methodologies with youth by centering transparency, reflexivity, reciprocity, curiosity, consent, and self-care. The chapters that follow draw from a range of qualitative and ethnographic studies to highlight how care mediates and informs the research process and offer concrete guidance for employing care-based methodologies in school-based studies with youth.
