The aim of this thesis is to address ethnographic research methods and its uses in the discipline of anthropology to reimagine an accountable and collaborative ethnography. The standard of ethnographic research methods relies on neo-colonial and exploitative practices to create knowledge and data. This thesis reinserts the work of many researchers of color identifying that the discipline’s antecedents practiced anti-racist, anti-colonial research methods. Through critical literature analysis and historicization, the research interrogates the complexities of insider/outsider research, collaborative research methods, and the politics of studying up to reimagine ethnography for liberation.
