Black like Me: A Shared Ethnography
Catlin, Janell N.
Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, v4 p13-22 2008
This study focused on a concept entitled shared ethnography. The researcher and youth participants share race in common. Critical Race Theory was used to analyze the reflective journal. An after school science program in a high poverty urban environment provided the context for this study. The findings of the study suggested that when researcher and subject share race in common, the researcher has a distinct insight into the subjects' experiences and that the subjects reveal more about their experiences. A shared ethnography implicates the power between researcher and subject in critical issues of race and racism.
