Abstract

This case study highlights the use of life story interview method in a dissertation project on mixed race identity in Canada. It begins with a discussion of life story method, including its epistemological and ontological assumptions. It then moves to focus on how I, as a researcher who identifies as mixed race, reflexively engaged with similarities and differences—complex commonalities—that emerged between myself and the study participants during the research process. This works to complicate the binary of insider/outsider research.
