This chapter uses two real-life case studies in order to examine the advantages and limitations of using autoethnography when investigating Islamophobic hate crime. The chapter discusses our personal journey as academics who used this research method in becoming ‘visibly’ identifiable as Muslims and document our experiences in relation to this autoethnography study. Autoethnography is a research method used by social scientists when immersing themselves in the footsteps of those they research about. We employ our diary extracts to describe in detail the impact of Islamophobic victimisation upon us and the coping strategies we used.
