Dewilde J & Creese A (2016) Discursive Shadowing in Linguistic Ethnography. Situated Practices and Circulating Discourses in Multilingual Schools. Anthropology and Education Quarterly, 47 (3), pp. 329-339. https://doi.org/10.1111/aeq.12158
We consider discursive shadowing as methodology in linguistic ethnography and how it refines our analyses of participants’ situated practices. In addition to the constant and extended company the researcher and key participant keep with one another in the field, shadowing in a linguistic ethnographic approach includes the ubiquitous audio‐recording of interactions, which provides opportunities to collect interactional data as they circulate across speech events and sediment into durable teacher identities in multilingual schools.
