Sometimes I Am Afraid: An Autoethnography of Resistance and Compliance
Averett, Paige; Soper, Danielle
Qualitative Report, v16 n2 p358-376 Mar 2011
Utilizing a feminist autoethnographic stance and method, this article is based upon the dialogues produced by a student completing an assignment for a social work instructor. Various tensions are explored, including the role of autoethnography in both qualitative and feminist research and the role of fear in a woman's life. A critique of the role of culture in the experience of fear as well as the student's use of autoethnography to resist and accept fear is explored. The uses of autoethnography for social workers are also discussed. (Contains 1 footnote.)
