Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This is a dialogue extracted from a conversation among members of the Equity Special Issue Editorial Panel about the role of a researcher's position in mathematics education. It raises issues about the non-neutrality of research; the relationship between a researcher's identity and the design, analysis, and conclusions of a research study; the benefits for researchers and participants in positioning oneself; and the role of mathematics education as a field in this endeavor.
