Abstract

This article considers the potential value of the researcher's self for making sense of others in doing fieldwork and writing ethnography. The author shows how her insights about an Israel experience program for unaffiliated, North American Jewish youth owe much to her positioned self, and she assesses how her self was radically altered by her fieldwork. Grounded in both personal narrative and ethnographic description, the author explores the mutually enriching relationship between self and other.
