Abstract

This chapter offers a brief overview of aspects of critical, performance and surrealist ethnography as ways to represent research findings. It evokes performances amongst the written-ness of (con)text and the challenges of classroom encounters as they each become entangled together as expres- sions of findings. It puts moments of ‘data’ to work as I try to interrupt my more familiar classroom performances of ‘self’, by turning to data in the form of narratives to provoke ‘ontological stammering’ (Lather, 1998, p.495). Using and writing through a story of a classroom encounter as an integral component of reflexive ethnography, attempts are made to perform some of my growing uncomfortable-ness as a teacher within this higher education landscape.
