Rethinking Qualitative Research: Research Participants as Central Researchers and Enacting Ethical Practices as Habitus
Keywords:qualitative research, ethical expertise, student researchers, marginalized populations, habitus
AbstractThis article suggests that qualitative research group dynamics shape university researchers' capacities for expertly enacting ethical practices. Specifically, I assert that when research participants become the researchers, both university-based and community-based members of the research group have opportunities to deeply experience each other's life worlds. By spending time together as researchers, we can then develop ethical expertise that is fluid, unconscious, and implicitly appropriate for the community in which the research is being conducted.
