Arts based methods and emancipatory disability research share a similar embodiment of inclusive/holistic alternative research approaches that challenge the hegemonic positivist research practices. By using an autoethnographic methodology, I engage in a critical self-reflexive process about my experiences as a doctoral student and researcher with significant hearing loss. The intent of this presentation is to reexamine research methods from an arts-based and emancipatory disability research lens. In other words, what alternative insights can we learn about research/er by intersecting arts based and disability research? The significance of this study illustrates a need to reexamine the notion of research/er in order to challenge the norms of research methods along with the norms of knowing.
