Thinking the social through myself book
For researchers using ethnographic methods, negotiating the impacts of our subjectivity is an important methodological and analytical consideration. In lifestyle and action sport studies, researchers are often invested insiders so developing reflexivity is especially important. This chapter will discuss Probyn’s (1993) reflexive suggestion that we think the social through ourselves, and explore the productive critiques of what it means to centralise our own subjectivity in our research. By positioning our researching selves as key to research approaches, we are better able to engage with the effects of our researcher subjectivities on our research practices, spaces and relationships.
