In this methodological article we examine how knowledge is shaped in the ethnographical fieldwork that is being conducted in educational institutions. We are especially interested in how language and writing are engaged in the production of knowledge. We analyse the encounters between the researcher and her field, and see these as emerging in the processes of listening and observing. Hence, we explore how observations and speech turn into writing. Writing also mediates knowledge of the field, but not all of the observations and remarks of the ethnographer captured in the writing. Ethnographical research in the field of education, with the participants being young people and children, deciphers the questions concerning the power-relations between the researcher and the participants and their positionings in relation to each other, both being central issues in feminist methodology. Following the tradition of feminist research, we also concentrate on ethical issues throughout the article.
