Sample text

Within the multiple positions of the selves and the various identities ‘performed’ in the research process, the subjectivity of the researcher and that of the researched group came to be foregrounded, which is an indication of the blurred boundaries between the researcher and the researched group. Feminists have produced provocative publications that have influenced the work on this blurred relationship (Diane 1995; Collins 2000; Mohanty 1991; Hutson 2001). While conducting the study, I was aware of the multiple positions and identity performance in the research process.

Ethnography is a research method and methodology that asks questions about the social and cultural practices of groups of people, as it attempts to understand other perspectives and lives. This research approach also studies global and interconnected processes, such as migration, refugeedom, exile, identity and race. In the case of Sudanese women involved in this study, it is no longer a Western traveller exploring exotic cultures; rather it is a Sudanese community in the diaspora of the UK and a Sudanese researcher informed by a feminist ethnographic lens who is conducting research.

They viewed how the concept of performativity departed from addressing issues of culture (doing) and ethnicities (being) outside the domain of social acts. Butler (1990) and Dolan (2001) maintained that the concept constructs non-­essentialized views on identities by tackling power dynamics that formulate and construct marginalized identities. Butler (1990), whose preoccupation was the question of identity, challenged feminist theory and politics by placing the concept of performativity centre stage.
