Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Ethnography at its heart seeks to elucidate participants' voices and to represent their world as authentically as possible. Recently, researchers have accepted that the notion of pure objectivity is a myth and that at least some representations of the self will be present regardless of one's intentions. Traditionally, ethnographic research has focused heavily on researchers' observations coupled with interview data.
