ABSTRACT. In university doctoral supervision, both supervisors and students have been positioned as autonomous rational scholars within a masculinist Enlightenment discourse that has continued to shape both sole and collaborative approaches. The latter are increasingly hedged by neoliberal policies and risk management practices that aim to efficiently expedite transparent and accountable research. Alternative feminist understandings and practices of ethically reflexive collaboration, such as those that underpin the various types of memory work methodology such as the one used in our research, have been largely marginalized in these developments. In this article we set the scene for the rest of the contributions in this issue by bringing to the fore some “backstories” that influence ethical supervisory practices, and which leave their traces in the research ethics of our respective university codes and policies. We point to some of the dilemmas that ensue and problematics that are devolved on supervisors that inform other articles in this issue. pp. 19–38

Keywords: neoliberal risk management; doctoral supervision; feminist collectivity; research ethics; care
