Managing Emotions in Research with Challenging Pupils
Gillies, Val; Robinson, Yvonne
Ethnography and Education, v5 n1 p97-110 Mar 2010
This paper explores the challenge of matching practice with the ideals of participatory research and the reflexivity and (re)negotiation of the researcher's role. We highlight the centrality of emotions to our study, both in terms of the substantive topic and our observations and experiences as researchers. Building on this experience we argue that recognising and foregrounding the emotional dimensions of research is an essential step towards producing a rigorous and convincing ethnography.
