Reflexivity in the Interstices: A Tale of Reflexivity at Work in, during, and behind the Scenes
Wickens, Corrine M.; Cohen, James A.; Walther, Carol S.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n9 p863-876 2017
This article is a story of how the authors came to make sense of the significance of those words in relation to gender, race/ethnicity, and citizenship in writing a manuscript about L[subscript 1]L[subscript 2] acquisition. It is a tale about how Reflexivity wove itself into the conversations, into the writing, into the in-between spaces, the interstices of the research and the writing. To this end, Reflexivity acts as a character interjecting itself into the journal narrative. In doing so, Reflexivity challenges us as researchers/writers to revisit what we thought we understood about our research participants, our own language, and ultimately ourselves.
