Summary "Drawing from an array of international scholars' practical experiences, Collaborative Cross-Cultural Research Methodologies in Early Care and Education Contexts demonstrates how to conduct collaborative cross-cultural research and investigates the field's nuances and dilemmas. The book focuses on rich, real-life attempts to negotiate and develop culturally sensitive theoretical and conceptual frameworks, equivalent studies, and systems of relationships across distances, languages, ethics, and practices.
