In this session Culturally Responsive Research Ethics will be described as a possible aspirational ethical stance in which researchers consider issues above and beyond IRB and discipline ethical codes. Drawing on tenets from ethnographic understandings of culture, culturally responsive teaching, reflexivity and relational research, culturally responsive researchers attempt to know their personal cultures and those of their participants in order to increase the likelihood of enacting ethically responsive research. Attendees should come ready for lively discussion over issues that may be unanswerable and will leave with questions to pose to themselves and the people they mentor in research.
