|Research practices are shaped by and responsive to context. Contemporary research methodologists have increasingly called on researchers to be explicitly and systematically reflexive about their practices. As writing researchers have begun untangling the complexities of ethical research practice, new practices have developed and new issues have arisen. This volume contributes to the continuing examination and development of ethically responsible, self-reflexive, and systematic research on writing. With a look toward the ways diffractive methodology and inform our self-reflexivity, this volume highlights particular ways of looking back and forward, as ways to complicate our practices in the moment.|
