ON THE ROAD TO HEIGHTENED PERFORMATIVE AUTOETHNOGRAPHY
Halfway There: From Ethnography to Narrative Ethnography
This chapter travels the road toward heightened performative autoethnography (HPA), the repertoire of this present book. A term of my initiative, “heightened performative autoethnography” (HPA) depicts what I deem a new variant of autoethnography. To present the basis for HPA, this chapter discusses ethnography and narrative ethnography, a type of parent and sibling (respectively) to autoethnography and hence HPA. Thereafter, Chapter 3 travels the rest of the roadway, discussing autoethnography, HPA, the eighth moment of qualitative research, and the quest for social justice. Chapter 3 thereby leads into Chapter 4, the final chapter of this first part focused on “constructing the stage for the performance.” Chapter 4 discusses social justice as epistemological liberation to be had within the scenario of paradigm resistance, so as to complete the groundwork for performative Chapters 5 to 9, which bring HPA into the generalized critical theme of paradigm resistance. I now backstep to present Chapter 2, beginning with the first mile marker on the road to HPA.
