Reflections on Activist Research

(p.227) Postscript Home to Roost
Scratching Out a Living

Angela Stuesse

University of California Press

This concluding chapter considers the book's activist research in Mississippi, particularly the ways in which it sustains and complicates the basic tenets of activist research. Firstly, the research generates better scholarship in the form of improved methodological rigor and the creation of new and different knowledge. Secondly, it reconceives relations of power within the research process. Finally, it contributes to the understanding of marginalized people's movement toward liberation. The chapter asserts that the activist research validates its findings by addressing key questions such as: How to write against inequality and how to objectively consider the political commitment of collaborators in the study.

Keywords:   activist research, methodological rigor, research process, liberation, marginalized people
