Irene Ryan and Shelagh Mooney

In this chapter, our purpose is to show how autoethnography offers researchers a method for addressing the challenges identified by critical scholars in diversity, equality and inclusion research (EDI). These challenges include how to incorporate observations of everyday social exclusions into multi-level analyses and the need for diversity scholars to be more reflexive about the basic assumptions that underpin their research. Two examples are used to illustrate two different approaches to writing an autoethnographic text, which align with the axiological and epistemological considerations that are an integral part of all EDI research projects. By allowing the reflexive voice of the researcher to be paramount, autoethnography gives us precious scholarly space to be scriptwriters, improvisers and directors of what we write and, often, to be surprised by what can emerge.
