In this chapter, we present a methodological framework for scholar-activists who are interested in researching phenomena in which they are active participants as well. Using the example of an interfaith research team studying the impact of interfaith efforts, we consider what insights can be gained from researchers becoming participants in the research process. The members of the interfaith research team study the effect interfaith organizations have on individual, organizational, and community level outcomes. At the same time, research team members are committed as individuals to promoting social justice and understanding others of different faiths. By studying their own interfaith efforts, the research team is able to find deeper understanding of both the interfaith process and their own subjectivities as researchers.
