Attention also is given to the different purposes and approaches of specific genres through readings and examples of work, such as qualitative/interpretive description, narrative and arts-informed studies, critical inquiry, participatory action research (PAR), and approaches to research within the traditions of ethnography, grounded theory, and phenomenology.
