The purpose of this paper is to make a case for the strength of qualitative work, but more specifically for various kinds of ethnographies.
The authors argue that global neoliberal and audit culture policies have crept into academic research, tertiary education practice, and research culture.
The authors then discuss major tenets of and make the case for the use of auto-, duo-, and collaborative-ethnographies as caring practices and research method(ologies) that may in fact push back against such hegemonic neoliberal practices in the academy. Finally, the authors link these caring types of ethnographies to the papers within this special issue.
This is an original look at the concepts of auto-, duo-, and collaborative-ethnographies with relation to caring practices.
