The onion as metaphor for critical qualitative research

The onion images running through this website connote and convey many aspects of qualitative analysis: multi-layered; pungent /striking; whole different than sum of parts; emergent ideas sprouting; multiple meaning; chopped up into segments; captures flavour; multiple uses; concerning the mundane/ordinary; cut across the grain, can invoke physical and emotional reactions (e.g., tears, aversion, appetite)… and any other meanings viewers may assign.
