>qualitative research in the 21st Century
>
>Technological innovations, the development of multinational corporate
>structures, and growth in transnational population flows have resulted in
>globally shifting political, economic, and social landscapes. Qualitative
>researchers have access to new methods of generating, analyzing and
>representing data, along with expanded opportunities for forming different
>kinds of research alliances with both other researchers and participants
>in studies. Yet, along with these opportunities come challenges. Political
>agendas impact the ways in which knowledge is produced, what research is
>valued, and how and what research findings are disseminated. With the
>promise of technology, come new ethical dilemmas. Transnational population
>flows allow for new spaces for understanding of difference, as well as
>possibilities for shifting discourses of intolerance.
