This chapter asserts that researching communities has long been beset with difficulties that are still being debated. Such discourses arise from questions like: “how is it possible to delimit the spatial boundaries of a research locale?” or “what determines the temporal frames of a study?” In relation to the spatial frame of a study, for example, the classical presumptions of studies of community, with their focus on bounded and stable social settings, were profoundly disrupted by intensifying social change. Direct pressures for new ways of researching came from social movements such as the liberation struggles of colonized peoples, the civil rights movements of discriminated groupings, and the assertions of the subaltern.
