Researching groups that are hidden and/or marginalized

Levinson, M.P (2008) 'Researching groups that are hidden and/or marginalized.' Research Intelligence, 102. pp. 16-17.

Abstract

In 1996, in a spirit of naïve, quixotic idealism, I embarked on a study of Gypsy Travellers in the South West of England. I have been working with Romani communities ever since. I have had dogs set on me, car wheels removed, and hexes put on me. The experience has been challenging, frustrating and enriching, leading me to question many of my preconceptions about the research process.
