Abstract

Temporality in Qualitative Inquiry explores the relationship between time and qualitative research and unpacks some of the conceptual, methodological, practical, and pragmatic areas of qualitative inquiry related to time and temporality. This book advances the understanding and re-evaluation of research practice by examining the passage of time, temporal feeling, and conceptualising of time/temporality in research practice with participants. It provides theoretical and practical insights into how to navigate the concepts of time and temporality in qualitative inquiry. With authors from across the globe and from an array of social sciences including cultural studies, education, health, management and business, psychology, sociology, and sport and exercise, the book explores theoretical, methodological, and practical discussions of time and temporality in order to unpack and elicit meaning and understanding. The editors champion the call for the existence of slow and quick qualitative methodologies and methods. As such, this book is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in qualitative inquiry, and in disciplines such as education, health research, management, psychology, sociology, and communication studies.

Abstract

This open access book constitutes an ethnographic mosaic which depicts the contextual complexities of the life and work of seafarers who are employed in the international merchant cargo fleet. The collection is based upon the observations and interviews of researchers in multiple disciplines. It is woven together to offer a richly detailed insight into the ways in which a complex global industry operates internationally. The book covers issues to do with career decisions and recruitment, gender, life and work on board multinational vessels, health and safety issues, the regulation of the industry, shipboard roles and role conflict, and the representation of workers. It will be of considerable interest to all students globally who are studying for professional seafaring qualifications, to graduate students studying for masters courses in ship and port management, and to welfare professionals and policy makers. It is of special interest to those connected to the shipping industry who specialize in issues relating to 'the human element' and will serve as a paradigm defining text in this area.

Abstract

This open access book provides an extensive review of ethical and regulatory issues related to human infection challenge studies, with a particular focus on the expansion of this type of research into endemic settings and/or low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Human challenge studies (HCS) involve the intentional infection of research participants, and this type of research is rapidly increasing in frequency worldwide. HCS are widely considered to be an especially promising approach to vaccine development, including for pathogens endemic to LMICs. However, challenge studies are sometimes controversial and raise complex ethical issues, some of which are especially salient in endemic and/or LMIC settings. Informed by qualitative interviews with experts in infectious diseases and bioethics, this book highlights areas of ethical consensus and controversy concerning this kind of research. As the first volume to focus on ethical issues associated with human challenge studies, it sets the agenda for further work in this important area of global health research; contributes to current debates in research ethics; and aims to inform regulatory policy and research practice. Insofar as it focuses on HCS in (endemic) settings where diseases are present and/or widespread, much of the analysis provided here is directly relevant to HCS involving pandemic diseases including COVID19.

Abstract

While the opening of Kaduna Textiles Limited in 1957 represented the encouraging beginning of the industrialization of Kaduna, its closure in 2002 had significant consequences for workers and their families. Without payment of their termination entitlements, former KTL workers, wives, and widows met to establish the Coalition of Closed Unpaid Textiles Workers of Nigeria. Compiling a list of the names of deceased KTL workers, they hoped that “the work of the dead” would put pressure on government to pay their entitlements. For former KTL employees, their new ways of thinking about work, labor organization, time, money, and health were challenged by deindustrialization, while the lives of their widows and children were shattered by the loss of their husbands and fathers. Widows buried their husbands and subsequently worked to provide their children with education, housing, and food, while their children had various responses to their families’ declining economic situation. As such, deindustrialization in Kaduna, as elsewhere in the world, has contributed to unemployment, poverty, hunger, illness, and death. While remittances for dismissed KTL workers remain unpaid and the mill has not reopened, the Coalition’s listing of the names of the dead continues as a constant reminder of their society’s injustice.

Abstract

"Many of the men who worked at KTL who have died since the closing of the Kaduna Textiles Limited mill without being paid their entitlements have had their names included on the list compiled by the Coalition of Unpaid Textile Workers Nigeria. This listing of names, along with their graves, funeral programs, and death certificates constitute “the work of the dead” in redressing some of the failures of their government and their society. The lack of food and health care, the minimum requirements needed for a decent life, suggest the need for new ways of thinking about the growing disparity in wealth—with ever greater inequality—in Nigeria. While this situation may be lessened through the reduction of corruption and through government programs for widespread food, health care, and education may be implemented, many Nigerians are considering the creation of alternative paths to well-being. Through the numerous programs proposed for increasing youth employment —training and support for small and medium enterprises, agricultural programs, and more efficient and environmentally sound smaller-scale industries, the possibilities for a new deindustrialized era are being imagined and may be pursued.

Abstract

The production of manufactured textiles at the Kaduna Textile Limited mill was an important development which led to the employment of many men from the small ethnic groups in southern Kaduna and Middle Belt states. The KTL Handbook, which workers received, laid out work rules which emphasized the importance of being on time. This aspect of industrial labor—the importance of keeping to time with clocks and watches—differed from many workers’ earlier experience of agricultural work. Yet despite KTL workers’ acceptance of the new work and time regime, the closure of the mill due to irregular electricity, antiquated equipment, and lack of government support led many to return to agricultural labor or to service employment in the city. For those preferring to remain in Kaduna, the difficulties of living without regular income and access to food and health care has contributed to the many health problems experienced by former KTL workers and their subsequent deaths.
