Going Native

     I agree, “going native” is a great method to help processing research and collecting data. However, like this article mentioned, research results could heavily based on the researcher’s point of view. Based on their identities and backgrounds could always affect the research results. It is very important to understand the researcher’s social context (class, gender, ethic, etc.), political position, and personality in order to avoid the false and misleading of the…
