…Working with (a) Rhizoanalysis…and Working (with) a Rhizoanalysis
Sellers, Marg
Complicity: An International Journal of Complexity and Education, v12 n1 p6-31 2015
Rhizoanalysis is introduced here as a way of processing through an assemblage involving research methodology, data generation and analytical possibilities entwined within. In concert, rhizomethodology is presented as a way of working (with) data, complexly; a way of putting the Deleuzo-Guattarian philosophical imaginary of rhizome to work. With/in/alongside this rhizomethodological approach, which I employed in my doctoral thesis, rhizoanalysis (as both process and product) is concurrent, becoming the inquiry of the research, (e)merging through the whole research process. In this everything is always already happening--dynamic, changing, in flux--disrupting any (mis)conception of rhizoanalysis as a specifically definable process with distinct and reproducible outcomes. Rather, there is an ongoing intermingling of data, methodology and analysis enmeshed with theorising the literature and practicing the theory, in which each becomes the/an/other. In this article I (re)turn to parts of the never ending slip-sliding (ad)venture of my doctoral research.
