The emergence of solidarity in collaborative research

Ritchie, S.M. and Rigano, D.L. (2007) The emergence of solidarity in collaborative research. In: Ritchie, S.M., (ed.) Research Collaboration: Relationships and Praxis. Sense Publishers, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, pp. 13-25.


Illustrating how the construct of solidarity became an essential feature of the theoretical framework developed in Chapter 1, in this chapter we focus on a cross-case analysis of the relationships and practices of two contrasting collaborative research teams of education researchers. From this study we hypothesize that solidarity is a stratified construct. Furthermore, we discuss our own evolving collaboration in terms of solidarity and describe our attempt to appropriate particular writing practices articulated by one of the research teams.
