From the Form to the Face to Face: IRBs, Ethnographic Researchers, and Human Subjects Translate Consent
Metro, Rosalie
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v45 n2 p167-184 Jun 2014
Based on my fieldwork with Burmese teachers in Thailand, I describe the drawbacks of using IRB-mandated written consent procedures in my cross-cultural collaborative ethnographic research on education. Drawing on theories of intersubjectivity (Mikhail Bakhtin), ethics (Emmanuel Levinas), and translation (Naoki Sakai), I describe face-to-face consent encounters that offer alternate possibilities for ethical practice.
