Donald Schön’s (1983, 50) notion of ‘troubling’ is the catalyst for this action inquiry. ‘Troubling’ is linked to Lewin’s (1948) suggestion that action inquiry begins with a general or initial idea and Zuber-Skerrit’s (1993) suggestion that inquiry is initiated by a problem. Strauss and Corbin (2008, 23) articulate ‘troubling’ about practice by suggesting that one’s professional experiences often lead to ‘the judgment that some feature of the profession or its practice is less than effective, efficient, human, or equitable’.
This inquiry was initiated in ‘troubling’ around the hegemony of research dissemination. Research dissemination is influenced by the scientific paradigm’s impact on research and limited to journal publications and conference presentations. In proposing a presentation for the Inaugural Storytelling conference in Prague in 2012, I offered something different in the form of an auto ethnographic cabaret. This proposal was the initiating cycle for my inquiry.
