Researching stigma as an outsider: considerations for qualitative outsider research

Abstract

In this article, we discuss a number of important considerations that we have encountered in the process of researching health stigma topics as ‘outsiders’: researchers (personally) unfamiliar with the experience or topic under study. In particular, we discuss the importance of the following: a reflective stance, challenging negative representations, flexible and sensitive recruitment strategies, validating experiences of stigma, and participant control and power. We see these points as particularly important in the context of researching stigma as outsiders, where our privilege may contribute to unhelpful, narrow, de-politicised or overly simplistic representations of particular ‘groups’ or experiences. We share these considerations in hope of assisting other researchers to reflect on, and articulate, how they negotiate their positionings within their research and the ways in which they shape and construct the research agenda and by implication the people or topics under examination.
