Re-Turning Feminist Methodologies: From a Social to an Ecological Epistemology
Hughes, Christina; Lury, Celia
Gender and Education, v25 n6 p786-799 2013
This paper proposes an ecological methodology in order to re-think the concept of situatedness in ways that can take into account that we live in relation to, and are of, a more-and-other-than-human world. In doing so, the paper proposes that situatedness should be understood in terms of processes of co-invention that, fractally and recursively, open onto other co-inventions that include the non-human. The paper illustrates this through the concept of patterning. It advances a number of terms--cutting, knotting, contrasting, figuring--as potential practices that can be drawn on to provide analyses of dynamic and multiple relations that cross the boundaries between human and non-human forces.
