This chapter outlines the author's own research practice designed to address the theoretical questions about culture, narrative, and identity posed in Chapter 1. But this chapter cannot simply offer an account of detached research activity, for such is not the story of this project. In this type of project, the reflexivity of the researcher is essential. That is, he must unapologetically locate himself for the audience by telling his own personal narrative and considering the way in which his process of discovery was coconstructed by him and his young Israeli and Palestinian research participants.

Keywords: Israelis; Palestinians; research practice; personal narrative
