A Pragmatist Account of Participatory Communication Research for National Development - Communication Theory 3(3)
by Tom L. Jacobson

Abstract:
Participatory research has often been advanced as a counter to academic studies, particularly to objectivist social science. Such a dichotomization is not necessary, and a strict division between normative and empirical research is not productive. Craig's proposal for treating communication research as a practical discipline is used to assess the potential status of participatory research as a scholarly, as well as a practical, endeavor.
