The “Intimate Outsider”? Reflections on Researching Teacher Communities, by an Ex-Teacher

I’ve just written a guest post for the FERSA Cambridge blog. Do check it out, as well as the other pieces on that platform! Most helpful for research students especially in the field of education.

I really enjoyed writing this reflective piece on identity and fieldwork relationships. Although my participants and I are not “friends” in the ordinary sense of the word, I am very fond of them and hope to be a useful person in their lives.
