(p. ii) Advanced Praise for The Oxford Handbook of Methods for Public Scholarship

“Patricia Leavy has assembled an eclectic group of scholars and practitioners who illustrate the breadth and depth of the field of public scholarship. Highlighting what is possible when thoughtful people work both inside and outside the confines of the academy, this handbook demonstrates how the power of research and scholarship can be held in the hands of many rather than in those of a select few.”

—Joe Salvatore, Clinical Associate Professor of Educational Theatre, New York University

"Helpful to both novices and seasoned academics alike, this handbook dives deep into the trends that have shaped our current understanding of, and need for, public scholarship, and the vast array of methods that can be employed in service of it. This handbook contributes greatly to the growing movement to make research relevant, accessible, and useful."

—Rosemary Reilly, Professor, Applied Human Sciences, Concordia University

“Editor Patricia Leavy assembles some of the most notable writers in public scholarship for this authoritative collection. The chapters offer both traditional and innovative methods for making research accessible to various participants and stakeholders. This important handbook comes at a critical time when academia must embed itself deeply in the local and global communities it serves to collaboratively create positive social transformation.”

—Johnny Saldaña, Professor Emeritus, Arizona State University

“Patricia Leavy has done it again—created a research methods work of importance and relevance and authenticity, with acuity and a keen sense of just what is needed for the field, in this case the field of public scholarship. This is the first comprehensive overview of public scholarship methods—something which Leavy has always pioneered, most particularly with her recent beautifully crafted work of social fiction and tenacious and inclusive leadership. In line with Leavy’s quest to make the work of the academy accessible and relevant to broad audiences and stakeholders, this book is yet another entirely accomplished collection from some of the world’s leading academics in the important domain of public scholarship. I recommend this work unreservedly for scholars and others, particularly those interested in the teaching and practice of research methods and public sociology.”

—Alexandra Lasczik, Associate Professor, School of Education, Southern Cross University
