Abstract

In qualitative research, marginality and reflexivity are often closely interwoven. An emic research strategy has provided major stimuli to qualitative psychological investigations. In light of questions posed about conceptualizing marginality, discussion has progressed. A range of ways of practicing epistemic reflexivity now help guard against the idea of any one researcher stance, method or form of inquiry guaranteeing knowledge via unmediated perception. The article espouses the proliferation within qualitative psychology of a range of potentially useful practices. Engaging reflexively with the question of when to centre marginality can be a strategy for attending to emotive forms of data and taking analysis in unexpected directions.
