Kaustav Das, Pinaki Dey Mullick
The present article isrninterested to reflect the ways and avenues of incorporating the voice ofrnpersonal experiences of the researcher into her/his research for understandingrncultural phenomena. In this entry, we have tried to open a discussion on thernissue of ‘self’ and ‘other’ dichotomy as a discourse and its changingrndimensions with the theoretical developments in social sciences. As arnqualitative research method Autoethnography utilizes data about self andrncontext to develop an understanding of the connectivity between ‘self’ andrn‘other’ within the same context. Writing Autoethnography and experimenting withrntextual fragmentation and formatting might capable us to extend ourrnunderstandings of personal emotions/feelings which is primarily underlined inrnpersonal experiences. We further, intend to focus on how to incorporaternresearcher’s personal accounts into social research limiting our discussion to Autoethnographyrnfrom the selected literatures.
