III. ILLUSTRATIONS OF HUMANITIES-ORIENTED RESEARCH


In this section, five common genres or approaches are briefly described as illustrations of humanities-oriented research in education: philosophy, history, arts-based education research, literary studies, and studies of the politics of knowledge. For each of these genres, aims, content and methods are described. The point of these illustrations is to elaborate further what humanities-oriented research is about and what kind of work it does in the field of education. It is important to reiterate that the purpose here is illustrative, rather than restrictive or honorific. These illustrations should not be taken as delimiting the boundaries of humanities-oriented research or suggesting some kind of hierarchy of acceptable or recognized approaches.
