This presentation covers 3 main areas

This Presentation Covers 3 main areas:

Issues involving insider and outsider

Managing the translators

Understanding

the problematic of the lack of education


Shared characteristics
Shared characteristics:

  • black

  • women

  • immigrant

  • all struggled to get integrated in the UK

  • English not my first language


Language translators
Language/Translators

  • Impact:

  • My own lack of familiarity in Somali language

  • Participants not wholly fluent in English:

    -Could not be sure of what the interviewees had said

    -Could not probe into reasons for body and facial expression

    -or reflect on body language

  • A vital ingredient that could enhance a better understanding of my participants’ narration was lost


Power struggle
Power Struggle

  • My invisible presence

  • Translators ‘ presence

    -Concern about an over-elaboration

    -Findings might reflect their own perceptions rather than the narratives of the participants

  • Felt powerless, excluded and a loss of authority

  • Reflecting on my position as ‘other’


Using reflexivity to deal with the emotional effects
Using Reflexivity to deal with the emotional Effects

  • Perceived connection:

  • From same continent

  • Same diasporic experiences

  • Same immigration struggle and integration

  • Known most of them for least 6-7 years


I agree with watts 2006
I agree with Watts (2006)

  • that no research material can prepare the researcher to deal with the research reality; that the uniqueness of each project demands an individual researcher to determine how best to proceed with their research.


What i did
What I did

  • I had to develop relationship purposefully

  • How? This a question that I would like you to ask me and we’ll come back to that


Reflexivity during transcription analysis
Reflexivity during transcription/ analysis

  • Recurrent themes: lack of education has reduced them to be socially immobile:

    -They depended on others to attend to certain basic needs in their lives

    -At the time I did not understand why


I noticed that
I Noticed that:

  • They have been brought up to obey rules

  • This attitude helped to confine them(e.g.)

  • Hence most could not educate themselves because of demand from the welfare benefit


Using field notes
Using Field notes

  • My own epistemological stance as a ‘feminist standpoint’ scholar was challenged:


Conclusion
Conclusion

  • Interplay between emotions and reflexivity can become a useful tool that produces positive results.

  • It can also distract us from the very information we (researchers) have gone out to seek if they are not handled properly.


My theoretical baseline is drawn from gilgun s work on issues in qualitative research
My theoretical baseline is drawn from Gilgun’s work on ‘Issues in qualitative research’.

Jane Gilgun suggests that reflexivity helps a researcher to be aware that her

presence in the research field affects the research in variety of ways and vice

versa. According to her

  • Understanding the research topic helps researchers to declare their own biases and their personal and professional stance regarding the research topic.

  • Knowledge about the research setting and the experiences of participants helps researchers to empathise with their subjects.

  • Such understanding enables researchers to present the research findings with their audiences in mind knowing that their audience depend on their thoughts to make meaning of the participants’ experiences.

  • (Gilgun, 2010: 2).

  • In the view of Diana Watt (2007) reflexivity is a necessary ingredient that helps a researcher to glean an understanding of the research topic/material, the research subjects and the research process.
