Description:
In field projects of LGBTQ studies, the sexual identities of the ethnographic researchers become salient when the researchers spend a lot time on building personal and trustful relationships with their informants. There are researchers, who self-identify with the LGBTQ labels, having revealed their sexual identity to their informants. They claim that sharing the same sexual identity with their informants have eased their entry into the field. After entering into the field, do sexual identities still matter? This talk will focus on how sexual identities shape the interactions between LGBTQ scholars and their research informants. The talk aims to discuss the subjectivity of LGBTQ scholars and how they negotiate their multiple identities in the field.
