Duoethnography is a collaborative research methodology in which two or more researchers juxtapose their life histories in order to provide multiple understandings of a social phenomenon. Using their own biographies as sites of research and creating dialogic narratives, they provide multiple perspectives of this phenomenon for the reader, inviting the viewer to enter the conversation. The dialectic process of creating duoethnography is also designed to be transformative to the writers. In this volume, two dozen scholars present the first wave of duoethnographic writings on topics as diverse as gender, identity, and curriculum, with the editors framing key tenets of the methodology around the studies presented. This participatory, emancipatory methodology is of interest to those doing qualitative research and narrative writing in many disciplines.

This book explores the value of duoethnography to the study of interdisciplinary practice. Through rich stories, scholars illustrate how dialogic and relational forms of research help to facilitate deeply emic, personal, and situated understandings of practice and promote personal reflexivity and changes in practice. In this book, students, teachers, and practitioners use duoethnography to become more aware, dialogic, imaginative, and relational in their teaching. Forms of practice examined in this book include education, drama, nursing, counseling, and art in classroom, university, and larger professional spaces.

The purpose of the following study was to explore women's unwanted miscarriage loss experiences through duoethnographic dialogues. Together, three participants as co-researchers shared their unwanted miscarriage loss stories and experiences through two separate duoethnography dialogues. Critical dialogue centered around three research questions: (a) what is the nature and characteristics of internal and external dialogues of women who experienced disenfranchised grief as a result of unwanted miscarriage loss?, (b) what internal and external sociocultural challenges have women faced as they grieve a miscarriage loss?, and (c) what mental health implications arise from dialogues of women's miscarriage loss experiences? In harmony with duoethnography methodology, participants identified conversation topics in which to start their critical examination process, and used themselves as the sites of their research (Norris & Sawyer, 2012). Drawing upon aspects of currere (Norris, 2008; Norris & Sawyer, 2012; Pinar, 1975, Pinar et al., 1995) participants looked forward, backward, and at the present moment through a cyclical process as they examined their thoughts, feelings, experiences, and attitudes from various angles. Throughout this introspective process, participants validated, supported, questioned, and challenged themselves and each other. Conversations morphed over time and salient points were identified. Through a deconstruction and reconstruction process, participants juxtaposed their thoughts and experiences into two easy to read restructured, script formatted dialogues. The dialogues exposed, challenged, honored, and gave voice to the many internal and external sociocultural challenges of unwanted miscarriage loss and disenfranchised grief experiences. This study contributes to an in-depth understanding of women's unwanted miscarriage loss experiences. Implications for counselor and counselor educators are also discussed.

This edited volume addresses the different methods professionals use to promote a critical reflective and reflexive stance among practitioners, leading to both a reconceptualization of practice and its subsequent change. The goal of increased reflection in professional education is intended to expand approaches for professionals to work with diverse others. It is also intended to increase their levels of cognitive differentiation and depth of professional consciousness about themselves alongside diverse others in a rapidly changing world. This is an important issue in a range of applied professional programs, from education to medicine, social work to psychology, business to criminal justice, in nearly every country in the world.

This book is for both art-based researchers and research-informed artists, exploring the theatrical genre known as Collective Creation, or Playbuilding. Performers generate data around chosen topics— from addiction and sexuality to qualitative research—by compiling scenes from their disparate voices. Audience members become involved in the investigation, and the performed scenes do not end the conversation but challenge and extend it. Through discussion and audience participation, the process examines how knowledge is defined and how data is mediated.

TitleAbstract/titlePurpose– The purpose of this paper is to engage with challenges the authors encountered in duoethnographic inquiry, including questions about what it means to tell the truth, and the decisions the authors made about what stories to include and exclude. The focus is on the ethical challenges involved in duoethnography and the ways in which the authors chose, and or felt compelled to, overcome them. The authors provide an argument for the need of intimate, eclectic and open-ended inquiry-based research that poses questions, challenges dominant discourses and promotes a compositional methodology in which to explore lived the experience of participants.Design/methodology/approach– The authors’ own duoethnographic process, embedded in an anthropological hermeneutics (Ricoeur, 1991), within a mode of narrative inquiry, developed over a period of three to four months. The authors had a number of formal and informal conversations – some recorded and transcribed, others remembered and reflected on later in e-mails or in draft academic papers. The authors shared articles, e-mailed, conversed with family and examined photos. Reflecting on some of these conversations, the authors were sometimes uncomfortable with the way the stories they shared had the potential to expose aspects of themselves and those the authors are close to. The authors developed fictionalising techniques and poetry in order to tell these stories.Findings– Duoethnography engages with method that reveals truth as layered, contradictory and necessarily intersubjective. It is this tentative and contingent nature of truth that augers for a hyper-consciousness of the relationship between transgression and transformation. Using fictional ways of knowing: poetry, scripting and metaphor; and the usual technologies of research: anonymisation, de-identification; and drawing on notions of redaction and under erasure the authors found safe ways to represent particularly challenging issues. The process involved intimate revealing – small stories that the authors shared here to argue for the importance of the affective in transformative educational research.Research limitations/implications– The authors continue to work in uncomfortable places and suggest that ethics often involves irreconcilable and incommensurate discourses which cannot always be accounted for in normalised codes of ethics. The authors argue that this tension provides an important on-going ethical encounter where, as researchers, the authors continue to generate and implement creative and innovative methodologies.Originality/value– Throughout the paper the authors have suggested ways to challenge the linear, logical and the predictable as the authors wrestled with how personal narratives may reveal personal truth and transformation that may open ways for larger transformative actions.

The Vulnerability of Teaching and Learning in a Selfie Society

"This book explores the generative power of vulnerabilities facing individuals who inhabit educational spaces. We argue that vulnerability can be an asset in developing understandings of others, and in interrogating the self. Explorations of vulnerability offer a path to building empathy and creating engaged generosity within a community of dissensus. This kind of self-examination is essential in a selfie society in which democratic participation often devolves into neoliberal silos of discourse and marginalization of others who look, think, and believe differently. By vulnerability we mean the experiences that have the potential to compromise our livelihood, beliefs, values, emotional and mental states, sense of self-worth, and positioning within the Habermasian system/lifeworld as teachers and learners. We can refer to this as microvulnerability—that is, those things humans encounter in daily life that make us aware of the illusion of control. The selfie becomes an analogy for the posturing of a particular self that reinforces how one hopes to be understood by others. What are the vulnerabilities teachers and learners face? And how can we joker, as Norris calls it, the various vulnerabilities that we inherently bring into teaching and learning spaces? In light of the divisive discourses around the politics of Ferguson, Charlie Hebdo, ISIS, Ebola, Surveillance, and Immigration; vulnerability offers an entry way into exhuming the humanity necessary for a participatory democracy that is often hijacked by a selfie mentality."
