Autoethnografie

  • Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Autoethnografie ist ein Forschungsansatz, der sich darum bemüht, persönliche Erfahrung (auto) zu beschreiben und systematisch zu analysieren (grafie), um kulturelle Erfahrung (ethno) zu verstehen (Ellis 2004; Holman Jones 2005). Er stellt kanonische Gepflogenheiten, Forschung zu betreiben und zu präsentieren, infrage (Spry 2001) und behandelt Forschung als einen politischen und sozialen Akt (Adams & Holman Jones 2008). Forschende nutzen Grundsätze der Autobiografie und Ethnografie, um Autoethnografie zu betreiben und zu schreiben. Daher bezeichnet Autoethnografie sowohl eine Methode/einen Prozess als auch ein Produkt.

Aus dem Englischen übersetzt von Paul Sebastian Ruppel und Katja Mruck.
