Narrative on a doctoral narrative : reflections on postgraduate study and pedagogy
Kapitzke, Cushla (1998) Narrative on a doctoral narrative : reflections on postgraduate study and pedagogy. The Australian Educational Researcher, 25(2), pp. 95-111.
This paper explores the stages of one student’s intellectual journey through a Doctor of Philosophy program of study in an Australian university. It outlines the theoretical and methodological insights made as she came to understand that data was discourse, entailing a politics and position of power that ran contrary to the aims of the study that the student was undertaking in and on her own community. The article is a reflective narrative produced from the experience of having to come to terms with some of the personal and professional tensions and contradictions that postgraduate study can, and maybe should, engender if it is to be any of real value.
