Researchquestions Researchquestions Presentation Transcript

  • Where does your research question take you? Examining assumptions and frameworks to see what picture emerges
  • Place your main research question in the middle Copyright: Radhika Gajjala, January 2004
  • What’s at stake in centering each of these What’s at stake in centering One and not the Other
  • Where is your center now?
    • What is Objectivity then?
  • THIS? THE RESEARCH QUESTION leads to sanitized SINGULAR, ABSOLUTE, UNIVERSAL(IZABLE) answer
  • This looks like a problem-free easy solution to finding objectivity….
    • THE RESEARCH QUESTION
  • IS IT THOUGH?
  • Is it though? Where is the question situated? Here? Here, perhaps? Hmm Maybe Even here…
  • If you center your question by erasing how it is multiply mediated by various interests and contexts, does that make you “objective”
    • THE RESEARCH QUESTION
  • So once again - where is the question situated? And who are you talking to to find answers to your question? Here? Here, perhaps? Hmm Maybe Even here…
  • WHY? A context that will explain some of your question Another context that will shed partial light on what you are researching One more context relevant to the question You are looking for answers here and only here Your question Here lie your so-called “objective” findings!
  • So why did you choose that question and where are you looking to find answers
