Daniel Hocutt, Ann Hill Duin, Jessica Lynn Campbell, and Mollie Stambler present. Autoethnography is a research method that draws from a variety of autobiographical data–such as memories, documents, ongoing self-reflections and observations–to explore and investigate social phenomena (Chang, 2016). Collaborative autoethnography (CAE) has multiple researchers use a multilayered approach to collecting data, performing ongoing self-reflection, interpreting data through collaborative meaning-making, and producing findings that achieve research objectives (Chang et al., 2013; Chang, 2016). CAE affords the combination of multiple voices and perspectives to interrogate a social phenomenon and can generate unique contributions in social science research. In this presentation, we discuss CAE as a valuable, under-utilized methodology for a variety of technical and professional communication (TPC) research. Drawing on an ongoing collaborative research project, panelists will demonstrate CAE’s value for TPC research with pedagogical implications.
