Davies, G. and Dwyer, C. (2007) ‘Qualitative methods: Are you enchanted or are you alienated?’, Progress in Human Geography, 31(2): 257–66.

Davies and Dwyer reflect on the links between qualitative methodologies, interpretative strategies, and movements away from ‘certainty’ as researchers begin to accept the ‘textured nature of the world’.

Blomley, N. (2008) ‘The spaces of critical geography’, Progress in Human Geography, 32(2): 285–93.

Blomley examines debates surrounding where critical geography is located – in the academy/publications or in the community/sites of activist struggle – arguing for the importance of the latter and collective forms of knowledge production.

Davies, G. and Dwyer, C. (2008) ‘Qualitative methods II: minding the gap’, Progress in Human Geography, 32(3): 399–406.

Davies and Dwyer raise many questions, and challenge several assumptions, regarding the way geographers conduct research in public/political domains, and articulate various ‘publics’, including through participatory engagement practices and the co-production of research.
