'Researcher | Researched’ calls for a complementary research methodology by proposing autoethnography as both a method and text that crosses the boundaries of conventional and alternative methodologies in higher education. Autoethnography rearticulates the researcher | researched positions by blurring the boundary between them. This repositioning opens up the dialogue to question what constitutes acceptable research methodology and data. I outline the autoethnographic methodological framework before discussing concerns about this form of research.
