Abstract

This paper explores new prospects for writing qualitative research that are possible within the postmodern climate of the 21(st) century. First, postmodern theory is established as a backdrop for considering how qualitative researchers studying human movement and sport might begin to legitimately question and reinvent their writing practices. Next, the rhetoric (i.e., characteristic manner by which texts, language, and organization convince readers of "truth") used in conventional texts and postmodern texts is considered. Finally, one of the authors qualitative research studies is "twice told" in the form of a conventional text and an impressionist tale (Van Maanen,1988) to exemplify how opening qualitative texts to a wider variety of rhetorical devices can dramatically change what is known about a given culturewhile at the same time pull the qualitative writing practices of those involved in the study of human movement and sport into the postmodern climate of the 21(st) century.
