Abstract

The personal and private dimensions of academics’ lives have been a growing focus in the psychological and sociological literature pertaining to their work (Harreveld & Danaher, 2004). One manifestation of this scholarship is the deployment of ethnography to explore informal learning experiences by others that resonate with the researcher’s newly developed interests, such as Delamont’s (2005) analysis of classes for the Brazilian dance and martial art capoeira in the Welsh city Cardiff. By contrast, some of this literature has drawn on the research method of autoethnography to develop academics’ and researchers’ reflexive accounts of their contributions to a range of disciplines, including vocational psychology (McIlveen, 2007, 2008).
