Naptime at the O.K. Corral

Sally Campbell Galman ’96 recently released a book, Naptime at the O.K. Corral — Shane’s Beginner’s Guide to Childhood Ethnography (Routledge, 2018). This illustrated guide will orient the reader to the fundamental challenges in doing ethnographic research with children. The book begins by briefly exploring the history of research on children, with children, for children, and “by” children. Throughout, it is about doing research with children rather than on them, highlighting their participant rather than object nature.
