ab: Summary: Using positioning theory and functional grammar, I reflect on the
way I position myself when my research in mathematics education is
published. I consider the way my authorship addresses the field,
focusing on the distinction between scholars who attend to the
sociopolitical context and they who ask of this research “Where is
the math?” I identify a range of discourses in which mathematics
might be located. Throughout this reflection I draw on two of my
publications for examples. Finally, I suggest some tools for reflecting
on the positioning and discourses at play in a research situation.
