Critical Autoethnography in Pursuit of Educational Equity: Introduction to the IJME Special Issue
Keywords:autoethnography, critical autoethnography, qualitative methodology, educational equity, social identities
In this introduction to the special issue of IJME, we highlight critical autoethnography’s potential for connecting the deeply personal experiences of race, gender, culture, language, sexuality, and other aspects of marginalization and privilege to the broader context of education in society. We discuss critical autoethnography as an interdisciplinary, blurred genre that transforms to fit the academic backgrounds, interests, and critical orientations of its authors. All contributors to this special issue situate their take on the genre in relevant literature and provide sociocultural critique in explicit and implicit ways.
