Main Article Content

Abstract

This paper discusses the ethical and methodological issues related to taking on the role of teacher to ones informants. Drawing on the authors fieldwork in Shanghai, it argues that as long as researchers are mindful of the problems created by such dual roles, teaching in the field may provide valuable insights that would otherwise not be available.
