Description

The Afterword attempts to situate the discussions in the volume within a broader context in two ways. While acknowledging the valuable contributions which the discussions make, it uses a specific example to point out some practical limits in their application. It also seeks to draw connections between these discussions and other discussions, using indigenous research methodologies as its example.
