Reid, James (2016) Troubling Narratives: Using ‘I poem’ narratives as a reflective tool within an institutional ethnography of ‘care’ in teachers’ work. In: SEPD Research Conference, 07 April 2016, School of Education & Professional Development, University of Huddersfield. (Unpublished)

This presentation explores researcher reflexivity developed during an institutional ethnography (Smith 2005) of a primary school. It illustrates use of a narrative method, ‘The Listening Guide’ (Mauthner and Doucet 1998) and particularly ‘I’ poems in analysis. However the theoretical and ethical foundation of The Listening Guide is troubling to IE. Drawing on Seamus Heaney and examples of ‘I’ poems I argue that it is because of their troubling nature that they are useful in revealing the co-ordination of social relations.
