Missing Stories: The Messy Processes, Multifaceted Risks, & Multiple Roles of Critical Ethnographers
Howard, Joy; Thompson, Candace; Nash, Kindel; Rodriguez, Sophia
Critical Questions in Education, v7 n3 p318-338 Fall 2016
In this article, four critical ethnographers reflect on dilemmas that arose during individual research projects. We grappled with the question: What does critical ethnography require from us as we work to represent stories that emerge in contexts where students and/or teachers have been marginalized? After engaging in a three-year process of diffractive analysis, we arrived at the notion of missing stories, as stories that involve messy processes, multifaceted risks and multiple roles in the telling and hearing of people's stories in research.
