In this article, we reflect on our experiences of collaborative working in a cross-cultural research team. We reflexively interrogate the construction of the univocal “we” that is expressed in our dissemination of the research findings. We show how cross-cultural collaborative research brings into sharp relief underlying complex culturally and theoretically determined patterns of thinking within the research team that may otherwise remain unquestioned. We conclude by considering the power dynamics within collaborative research, arguing for greater critical reflection by research members at all stages of the research engagement.
