Say what?

15 January, 2006

Reading the NYT magazine today I come across this:

I could see that research related to one’s identity – referred to in the academy as “mesearch” – could raise legitimate questions about scholarly objectivity.

I’ve never heard this term before. Is it actually used?

…The article turns out to be very interesting, adapted from a forthcoming book about “covering”: the decision members of a protected group must make about how much of their group identity to express, and how this turns into a civil rights issue for all of us. I recommend it.
