Finding God in Wellworth high school: more legitimations of story-making as research

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A curious piece of ironic, partially-dramatised auto/ethnography, this paper reflects an ongoing attempt to explore the vapid certainties of my own faith, some of the brittle discomforts of contemporary schooling, and the possibilities of a social science research methodology which can artfully assemble on the same stage belief, empirics and critique. Though actually too didactic to be art – and at the same time too casual to be social science – the paper supposes a set of incidents, based remotely on ‘actual’ events, which bring into collision some crises of faith, of schooling and of research methodology. I imagine that there is also some rather terrible humour to the piece
