Reality, Dysconsciousness, and Transformations: Personal Reflections on the Ethics of Cross-Cultural Research
Janusch, Sandra
TESL Canada Journal, v28 spec iss n5 p80-90 Sum 2011
In this personal narrative, I offer reflections about the process of conducting a cross-cultural, cross-linguistic research project with teachers of English in China. Lessons learned from this study address some of the hegemonic perspectives and assumptions that can be dysconsciously held by native English-speakers, the value of crossing borders both literally and metaphorically to learn about others, and the reciprocal transformations that can occur when cultures and languages converge in research.
