Exploring the dynamics of subjectivity and power between researcher and researched

Sarah Riley, Wendy Sims-Schouten, Sharon Cahill

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Three studies are described and examined in terms of the power dynamics created through the subjective positions made salient for both researchers and the participants by the research process. The reflexive accounts of these studies are informed by the post structuralist critique of reflexivity as both a truthful representation of the research process and one that can be produced by stable and unitary authors. In this paper subjectivity and power are explored through the use of different narrative styles that work to highlight the contradictory and fragmented nature of reflexivity as a new construction of (a past) reality.
