Fri, April 4, 10:35am to 12:05pm, Convention Center, Floor: 100 Level, 121B


This paper will present a methodology the authors call critical evocative portraiture. Their approach was initially used to explore social justice leadership in the actions of 23 women researchers and educational leaders from 14 countries. In this paper the authors ground the methodology in the literature on qualitative research associated with the terms critical, evocative, and portraiture. Explaining the distinguishing features of critical evocative portraiture, they offer it as a research approach that honors the complexity of powerful social justice leadership in difficult contexts and challenging times.
