Has anyone experienced blurring of boundaries between one’s identity as researcher and their work identity? What is best? To keep reinforcing the boundary? Or fluidize it and engage with what this offers? (maybe richer, but undoubtedly more problematic data)
I think that it is impossible to demarcate ‘who you are’ as individual person/wife/mother/worker/researcher. I think this is constantly changing and evolving as well. To not engage with this change as you are going through research would also be difficult for me. As Vincent has said daily I am thinking about my study in whatever context I am, whether work/home/shopping, and record the inspirations that come during those times. In fact the best inspiration comes just as I am going to bed at night, when my ‘identity’ is very different! How can you deny that inspiration just because it happened outside work or research mode?
