Promoting (reflexive) methodological pluralism: An autoethnographic account of mapping the political science research on judicialization

Promoting (reflexive) methodological pluralism:  An autoethnographic account of mapping the political science research on judicialization

Promoting methodological pluralism has been a major theme of discussion across multiple political science subfields. But, notably, qualitative methodologists have set forth meaningfully different visions of how this disciplinary norm should be implemented in practice, differing on whether emphasis should be placed on institutional-level representation or on a more bottom-up variety of pluralism. In this talk, the first in the new 'Rethinking Interpretive Methods' seminar series hosted by the Interpretation, Method, Critique network at the ANU, Leila Kawar will focus on the latter and elucidate how a reflexive dialogic approach holds the potential to enhance sensitivity to methodological diversity as a necessary step towards realizing ecumenical pluralism within the discipline. Kawar will illustrate this approach through an autoethnographic recounting of prior research experience with mixed methods team-based review article authorship. The analysis offers insights into dimensions of methodological difference as they operate in practice, while underscoring the significance of reflexive dialogue for advancing more fully inclusive pluralism within the discipline of political science.
