Navigating Cross-Boundary Connections in Educational Research
Oikonomidoy, Eleni; Wiest, Lynda R.
International Journal of Research & Method in Education, v40 n1 p53-65 2017
Drawing on insights from reflective research accounts in the social sciences, this paper attends to the complexities of conducting cross-boundary educational research. Cross-boundary research is defined as any type of inquiry that is conducted across cultural and/or structural boundaries, including but not limited to race, class, gender, language, religion, age, sexual identity, and national origin. The authors present dilemmas they have faced in conducting educational research and offer three intersecting recommendations for those who wish to conduct research across boundaries.
