From 'Subjective I's' to 'Self-evident I-deologies' in Qualitative Research: Developing Peshkin's Perception

Qualitative Research Journal
Volume 6 Issue 2 (2007)

Abstract: In this article I address a problem that demands the attention of social science researchers working within qualitative traditions: the unnoticed presence of ideologies in the conduct of inquiry. Building upon Peshkin's work on the role of subjectivity and his model of self-reflexivity in qualitative research, I examine how ubiquitous ideologies (naturalized, taken-for-granted, commonsense notions) of language affected my research topic and methodology in profound ways. I draw implications from this example to the pervasive problem of discovering 'Self-evident I-deologies' in qualitative inquiry.
