  20. Working with Paradata, Marginalia and Fieldnotes

    Working with Paradata, Marginalia and Fieldnotes

    Edited by Rosalind Edwards, John Goodwin, Henrietta O’Connor, Ann Phoenix
    This book asks the important question; Can the by-products of research activity be treated as data and of research interest in themselves? This groundbreaking interdisciplinary volume considers the analytic value of a range of ‘by-products’ of social research and reading. These include electronically captured paradata on survey administration, notes written in the margins of research documents and literary texts, and fieldnotes and ephemera produced by social researchers. Revealing the relational nature of paradata, marginalia and fieldnotes, contributions examine how the craft of studying and analysing these by-products offers insight into the intellectual, social and ethical processes underpinning the activities of research and reading.
