Abstract

This paper explores the role of emotions in feminist research involving the interview method. It considers how emotions are linked to knowledge production by drawing on literature that has examined the relationship between the research process and emotions. The historic exclusion of emotions in research is a political issue linked to the gender basis of knowledge production and is something that requires attention. It shows how the decision to reveal intimate and sensitive information by research participants can involve the suppression of emotions on the part of the researcher during the research. However, the extent to which emotional management is implicated in research depends on whether emotional reactions occur after the research, for example, during the process of transcribing data. Therefore the paper also probes briefly, the role of reflexivity as a possible method of interpreting emotions encountered at during the research process and when transcribing interview data
