On Being an Object of Research: Reflections from a Professional Perspective.
Applied Linguistics, v24 n3 p374-85 Sep 2003
Comments on the changed expectations of what it means to be a professional given the discursive and self-reflective turn in professional practice and the mistrust between the hard medical sciences and the soft social sciences. Discusses the necessary but difficult collaboration between observer and observed, researcher and researched, and the engagement and commitment that such a collaboration requires. (Author/VWL)
