Comparing Ethnographies: Local Studies of Education Across the Americas

Edited by Kathryn Anderson-Levitt and Elsie Rockwell

Crossing borders to compare ethnographic research across the Americas is difficult but imperative. In this volume, the editors and authors demonstrate what education researchers can learn by comparing ethnographic studies of similar problems conducted by scholars from Latin America on the one hand and from “North America” (the United States and Canada) on the other. From the volume’s case studies, readers will learn that work done in other parts of the hemisphere is significant and that it can expand the boundaries of their own research and theorizing.
