Documenting Militarism: Challenges of Researching Highly Contested Practices within Urban Schools
Abajian, Suzie M.
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v47 n1 p25-41 Mar 2016
This paper provides a discussion of the challenges and possibilities of conducting critical research on highly contested practices, such as militarism and military recruitment, in schools serving vulnerable and nondominant communities. The discussion is grounded in data collected from a year-long qualitative case study of an urban school in Southern California serving predominantly Latin@ students. Specifically, the paper explores tensions regarding positionality, consent, disclosure, and representation that the researcher encounters in her work.
