Toward Ethnographic Justice: Equitable Research with and for Linguistically Diverse Communities
Often, linguistically diverse communities face challenges navigating everyday communication systems, regularly facing barriers such as digital and health literacy in addition to existing linguistic and cultural challenges. COVID-19 exacerbated these challenges as communities became increasingly reliant on technological communication systems. Little research has been conducted about the experiences of non-native English speakers as they relate to the communicative shift brought on by COVID-19. Here, I reflect on my selection
of methods to ethically conduct research in this gap. Ultimately, qualitative ethnographic methods result in stronger data and more positive outcomes for linguistically diverse communities.
