Title: Embodied Research Methods
Editor: Jennifer Frank Tantia, PhD
Embodied phenomena have been explored in research in many fields of study such as psychology, expressive therapies, social sciences, anthropology, medicine, and education but to date there has not yet existed a collection of work that describes the specific ways in which embodied data collection and analysis can contribute to traditional styles of inquiry. Embodiment is an essential element of human experience, yet often missing in research data. This book will serve as an edited textbook that emphasizes embodied data in research methods. We are seeking chapter contributions that describe innovative research methods in both qualitative and quantitative approaches to embodied experience in research.
