Abstract

This special section of this issue emerged from responses to an article I wrote, “Autoethnography and Emotion as Intellectual Resources: Doing Prison Research Differently,” published in Qualitative Inquiry (18:1) in 2012. The article was, in essence, a plea for researchers who conduct ethnographic studies in prisons to disclose in their published work the many and complex emotional feelings and experiences they go through prior to, during, and after their fieldwork. My argument was that prison ethnographers are highly attuned to analyzing the fine nuances of their respondents’ agency, identity management, and socialization and survival strategies, but are often silent on their own agency, identity management, and socialization and survival strategies. If such reflections are present at all, they make a slightly apologetic appearance in an appendix.
