Reality, Dysconsciousness, and Transformations: Personal Reflections on the Ethics of Cross-Cultural Research

  • Sandra Janusch

Abstract

In this personal narrative, I offer reflections about the process of conducting a cross-cultural, cross-linguistic research project with teachers of English in China. Lessons learned from this study address some of the hegemonic perspectives and assumptions that can be dysconsicously held by native English-speakers, the value of crossing borders both literally and metaphorically to learn about others, and the reciprocal transformations that can occur when cultures and languages converge in research.
