The focus of this presentation is a consideration of some of the ethical issues that arise when using video-narratives both as a means to promote reflexivity and for presentation of the emerging academic self. In this way I aim to complement and contribute to discussions of the theoretical and methodological challenges addressed in other symposium papers. Using some of my own video-narrative that was produced during the project, I frame my discussion as a series of ethical questions driven by deontological and consequentialist concerns. These questions arise out of the presentation of an embodied self and engage with debates around notions of reflexivity, voice and the self, specifically as they pertain to auto/biographical productions. Such debates cross disciplinary borders, which in turn mirrors the interdisciplinary nature of the project itself. The common thread is a feminist concern with issues of power and my own desire to continue to work with/in this medium.
