This introduction situates the theme of this special issue across several disciplines where this is a growing body of literature, critique, and research on critical reflexivity and reflection of being in the field. The articles explore issues of identity, language, power and positionality by and of the researcher in multilingual fields in Canada, Spain, China and the United States. Through an examination of pre-,in-,and post-field experiences, the articles in this special issue focus diverse "methodological rich points" (Hornberger, 2006, p.221) in relation to the politics of "being in the field" when researching multilingual practices across transnational spaces.
