Assumptions, Emotions, and Interpretations as Ethical Moments: Navigating A Small-Scale Cross-Cultural Online Interviewing Study
In this article, the author maps important 'messy' elements that the author learned from his five-month small-scale research project, one that was designed around pivotal works on online social research. The author used computers and the Internet with Mian, a young man living in Guinea, West Africa, in order to examine his perceptions surrounding the value of these technological tools for his future. As a result, the author asserts that during online social research, reflexivity is a moral obligation, where meaning and representation can have a tendency to be skewed, especially when working in cross-cultural situations.
