Khunou, Grace, Kris Marsh, Polite Chauke, Lesego Plank, Igbanoi Osikhena and Mabone Kgosiemang, The South African Black Middle Class and Researcher Reflexivity: Does It Exist and Are We Members. Emerald Press ( Forthcoming, November 2019)
This book provides reflections of fieldwork for a study on what is means to be Black and middle class in South Africa. The researchers interrogate socio-economic and middle class concepts while reflecting on the process of interviewing the Black Middle class living outside of Soweto. The book highlights how the researchers reflect and question their own class status during the research project. This is known as reflexivity. Reflexivity allows scholars to question their methods and influences as researchers as well as take responsibility for their positionality and contribution to both the interview and theorizing process. This book demonstrates how these researchers understand themselves and their socio-economics status while interviewing the South African Black middle class.
