Abstract

This essay considers the uses of ethnographic and qualitative inquiry in higher educational research as they are limited by commitments to verifying data and representing the "real" and argues for broader understandings of such research. I examine limitations of and new possibilities for common elements of creating a "real" and elaborate on the role of speculative research that opens new paths for thought by acknowledging uncertainty and venturing multiple interpretations.
