- 762 Downloads
Research which involves human subjects is often a difficult enterprise. When you add ‘sexuality’ and ‘schooling’ to this mix, it becomes a veritable minefield. This chapter explores some of the complexities of undertaking research about young people and sexuality in the context of schooling. School environments are distinct because of the plethora of power relations which govern these institutions (Halsey et al., 1997). This chapter will examine some of the challenges posed by these particular configurations of power. For example, how they impinge on accessing a sample and implementing a research methodology which seeks to disrupt normative understandings of sexuality.
