Discuss the importance of these qualitative approaches of inquiry in building and sustaining
a “critical psychology” that is interested in understanding how:
1) knowledge is produced, used and appropriated
2) experience is framed and signified (depending on the social, cultural and particular
context of the group or individual)
3) the underlying ideologies, discourses and relations of power oppress, stigmatize or
alienate certain sections of society.
Take into account the following when elaborating the essay:
1. You will notice that there are three (3) interests in these approaches of inquiry. I am
interested in that you at least elaborate one of them. In essence, the three of them are
inter-related, so elaborating any of them in-depth will be enough for the purposes of this
2. There’s several theoretical frameworks (from constructivist and feminist theories to
colonial and ethnological theories) and methods (ranging from ground theory to analysis
of discourse and narrative analysis) that you can choose from in your elaboration of
qualitative approaches of inquiry. Although it would be recommendable that you mention
them, I am more interested in that you pick only one (a theoretical framework,
paradigm or method). Pick the one that fits more with your interests or the way you
make your approach to answer this essay.
3. Remember that the logic here is to discuss how this approaches of inquiry and particular
interests are related to a more “critical” psychology (at least as Ian Parker defines it).
Use at least two (2) of the assigned texts of the conference portion of the class. You
are also welcomed to use the texts assigned to the laboratory sections, as long as they
apply to your discussion.
