Type of paper: Refereed paper

If we see relationships as central to the research endeavour, how might this colour our view of research? This paper develops a methodological approach based on ethnography, which places relationship at its heart. Starting with the impact of a relationship between a student researcher and her mentor (the authors of this paper), it moves through the development of a research question about the experience of non Jewish teachers working in a Jewish school, and a methodology that emphasises reflexivity, relationship, centrality of writing, and working for change.
