Neal, Sarah (1998). Struggles with the research self: reconciling feminist approaches to antiracist research. In: Connolly, Paul and Troyna, Barry eds. Researching Racism in Education, Politics, Theory, Practice. Buckingham, UK: Open University Press, pp. 109–121.

Abstract

Using autobiographic experiences gained from my qualitative doctoral research into the place of race in equality discourses and equal opportunities policies in higher education, this chapter focuses on the ways in which the researcher’s gender impacts on the antiracist research project. The first part of the chapter traces the rise of the antiracist and feminist critiques of social research, charting their points of connection and their points of difference. The chapter then moves on to reflexively analyse my own research, focusing on negotiating the complexities between claiming research as antiracist and feminist and the research actually being antiracist and feminist.
