Reflections on Positionality: Pros, Cons and Workarounds from an Intense Fieldwork

Share Share Share Share Share
EDUARDO GONÇALVES and MARCELO FAGUNDES

During a project an ethnography team immersed itself in the lifestyle of lower socio-economic class women. From the different worldviews between these groups, we discuss positionality and access to data, i.e. the ways characteristics such as socio-economic, education, social status, and gender influence the research. The idea is not to set ‘rights’ and ‘wrongs’, but to ponder on how successful (or not) were our attempts and reflect on unforeseen effects of our own work.
