What happens as researchers negotiate between our own research agendas and the design and conduct of research that is respectful of diverse participants and their goals? How might we build relationships of mutuality into the research process – and what are the benefits, as well as the costs, in doing so? How is such work received, and published, in various venues?

Discussing research experiences that resulted in published research, this seminar will introduce differing approaches to interpretive research that are developing at the intersections of ethnographic, feminist, and interventionist approaches, and invite discussions about how such approaches might or might not fit within differing disciplines and research traditions.
