Entering a Crack: An Encounter with Gossip
Henderson, Linda
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v27 n7 p823-836 2014
In this paper, I enter a crack to think otherwise about the concept "gossip". Drawing on previous scholarship engaging with Deleuzian concepts to inform research methodologies, this paper builds on this body of work. Following Deleuze and Guattari, the paper undertakes a mapping of gossip, subsequent to an encounter with a crack. Thinking about gossip as something other than woman's small talk, the paper follows a line opening up gossip onto an intensive web of affects and Deleuze's becoming-woman. It concludes arguing that the process of entering a crack unlocked thought, making possible new ways of engaging with data.
