A Process of Becoming: In Favour of a Reflexive Narrative Approach
Lyle, Ellyn
Qualitative Report, v14 n2 p293-298 Jun 2009
As both researcher and practitioner, or in service educator, I often resist situating myself within one discrete tradition. For this reason, I turn to narrative as an approach to understanding. I believe employing narrative allows me to draw from a cross-section of scholarly work including reflexive inquiry, critical analysis, and autoethnography. Often qualified as a method or a tool of inquiry, the narrative approach is rarely examined for its epistemological underpinnings. Thus, "A Process of Becoming" refers to both the promotion of a methodological approach to knowing in social science and to the medium through which practitioners can become better acquainted with themselves.
