Reflexivity refers to the fact that the perspectives and methods of the social sciences construct the phenomena that are studied. Reflexivity is not a matter of choice nor is it a researcher virtue. Ethnographic research needs to take account of the various kinds and levels of epistemic reflexivity: disciplinary; methodological; positional; textual; and personal. We distinguish reflexivity—a condition of all research—from reflective practice, and from the individualistic claims for research virtue that are sometimes made in the name of reflexivity.
