My name is Jeffrey Keefer, and I blog as an opportunity to reflect on my own practice–professional, academic, and personal. I am interested in issues around organizational and personal power and positionality, theoretical and paradigmatic frameworks and models, critical and constructivist theory, and identity. To this end I advocate qualitative research, especially autoethnography, narrative inquiry, and liveblogging.

My blogging is often (seemingly) separate from my professional work (as an instructional designer, communications professor, and organizational consultant), so more about me can be found on my website JeffreyKeefer.com.
