“Reflexivity of reflexivity” with Roma-related Nordic educational research

  • Ioana Țîștea PhD candidate, Faculty of Education and Culture, Tampere University
Keywords: reflexivity; Roma; Nordic; education; coloniality; epistemic racism


In this article, I reflect on the various uses of reflexivity in Roma-related educational research focusing on the Nordic context, in my own and other authors’ writings. I respond to the call of the recently founded Critical Romani Studies journal for reflexivity, which has been raised since mostly non-Romani scholars produce Roma-related research. I purposefully selected 34 academic texts, which I closely read in relation to various research paradigms and their typologies of reflexivity, after which I further reflected on my own readings. The article contributes to recent debates arguing for reflecting on uses of reflexivity, or for a reflexivity of reflexivity, as a strategy to address the reproduction of epistemic privileges in research.
