Self-Reflexive Methodologies

Self-reflexivity in research entails a focus on examining, questioning and theorising the lived experiences and selves of researchers. Taking a self-reflexive stance offers a view of research that is experiential and contingent. It also calls attention to how uncertainty or not knowing in research processes can point to significant opportunities for discovery and growth. This offers a lifelike dimension that is often lacking in accounts of research that map out a predetermined, linear progression to a definitive endpoint.

 

Self-Reflexive Methodologies SIG participants are located within a range of academic/professional disciplines, but all share an interest in research methodologies that require self-reflexivity (including, but not limited to, self-study of practice, autoethnography and narrative inquiry). The SIG aims to facilitate development of a self-reflexive research learning community through a range of virtual and face-to-face activities that will extend beyond the SAERA conference meetings.
