Yes! I thought her experiences as an insider researcher and an outsider researcher were really insightful. Also how this concept is not β€œall or nothing” was really interesting. Like when she was recounting working with Gujarati speakers in Singapore, she said she was an insider in terms of language but often an outsider in terms of religion, so that was an interesting dynamic to navigate.
