Reflexivity—thinking critically about one’s own position and how it affects one’s research—is vital in any social research project. But there is relatively little advice available about how to achieve it in practice. Doing Reflexivity offers that advice, presenting both a clear argument for the importance of thinking reflexively and a practical guide to actually making it part of research. Built primarily on the contributions and approach of Pierre Bourdieu, it matches academic analysis and practical examples and will be of use to researchers at all stages of their careers.
Review Quotes
Mark Taylor, University of Sheffield
"An essential guide for working sociologists; it not only provides a clear theoretical and empirical exploration of the concept and practice of reflexivity, but also provides  opportunities to recognize how far we ourselves already do reflexivity and how we can use it to improve our research and teaching practices."
Eric Baumgartner, Teeside University
"Provides a framework of how to conceptualize reflexivity and its successful integration into one’s own research. . . . Particularly recommended for students and early career  researchers who seek to contextualize and understand their ‘identities’ in the research process."
Helen Kara, WeResearchIt, author of "Creative Research Methods in the Social Sciences"
"This engaging and readable text offers invaluable help for any social science researchers grappling with reflexivity."
