Abstract

Specific stories have been presented within this book whose aim is to capture a glimpse of a world beyond the normative constructions of what ethical research with children looks like. We have stepped beyond the boundaries of topic, interrogated discursive and structural motifs of childhood itself, reflected upon our own roles and identities in the research process and questioned the construction and application of ethics and ethical principles. The stories we tell reflect upon the juxtapositions inherent between the ethical principles that currently guide research with children and the practical realities of such endeavours. Having to confront paradoxes of position, power, voice and topic, to name but a few, means that we inevitably challenge orthodox methodological discussions about ethics. It is in the telling of such stories that we seek to move ethical understandings further.
