Seeking a usable methodology: The production of the fin-de-siecle female prostitute

Jansdotter, Anna LU (2008) In Qualitative Research 8(3). p.307-315
Abstract
The idea of a usable methodology, one which will both retain the idea of 'a subject' at the heart of research and also recognize that in historical research the researcher necessarily has to work with textual remains, is discussed. Piecing this together is explored in relation to researching correspondences and other archival materials relating to two women who were fin de siecle prostitutes and also a deaconess who helped and 'rescued' them.
