Much of qualitative interview research encourages researcher reflexivity, though there seems some uncertainty of how one actually does reflexive research. We show in this case that reflexivity includes examinations of the researcher in relation to the interviewed “other,” and that transcriptions—a common element of interview-based studies—afford valuable and unique opportunities for reflexivity. By revisiting multiple transcriptions of the same interview, we explore a range of issues in qualitative research, including power differentials and the value non-verbal elements in interview talk, which demonstrate the value of transcription in encouraging researcher reflexivity.
