Description This article is a collaborative autoethnographic reflection about two dance-based research projects. Our objectives for the projects were two-fold: to practice knowledge production and mobilization in a way that diverged from dominant traditional Western scholarship, and to re-examine our engagement with the self-injury focus of previous research. With our collaborative meaning making came new dilemmas and unanticipated relationship development. Through dance and collaborative writing, we discovered a vulnerability that could cast doubt on dominant knowledge practices. As a relational praxis, two stories converged to facilitate critically reflexive perspectives and less dominant ways of knowing directed toward social justice.URN: http://nbn-resolving.de/urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs170216
In diesem Beitrag leisten wir eine kollaborative Autoethnografie zweier tanzbasierter Forschungsprojekte. Wir verfolgten mit diesen Projekten zwei Ziele: 1. die Produktion von Erkenntnissen jenseits des dominanten westlichen Wissenschaftsverständnisses und 2. eine Überprüfung unseres Wissensstandes aus vorangegangenen Forschungsarbeiten zu selbstverletzendem Handeln. Aus unserem kollaborativen Ansatz resultierten neue Dilemmata und unerwartete Beziehungsverläufe. Tanz und gemeinsames Schreiben sensibilisierten uns für eine Vulnerabilität, die dominantes Wissen infrage stellte. Als relationale Praxis konvergierte unser Schreiben dahingehend, dass es zu einer kritischen Reflexion der jeweiligen Perspektiven verhalf und zu einem Mehr an sozialer Gerechtigkeit beitrug.URN: http://nbn-resolving.de/urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs170216
