Abstract

This presentation will use all three grammatical persons as we explore caring in education as experienced from the perspectives of son, mother, and father-researcher. Mother and son will reflect independently on their memories of instances of caring and not caring during their own school years, as well as their mother-son perceptions during the son's elementary, high school, and college years. That is, mother and son will describe both their own personal perspectives, as well as their social perspectives afforded by their positionality in a family structure. Based on these personal and social dialogues and perspectives, the father-researcher (Jim Bernauer) will attempt to create a synthetic dialogue after-the fact with these two participants by analyzing and synthesizing their perspectives in relation to the importance of caring in education and thus in educational research.

Comments

It is intended that both participants as well as the researcher will attend the conference and will co-present.
