Writing a Thesis Differently
Honan, Eileen; Bright, David
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v29 n5 p731-743 2016
In this paper we explore the contributions that Deleuze and Guattari have made to thinking/writing language and how these ideas can be put to work in producing a doctoral thesis. We contribute to the field of work within what Patti Lather and Elizabeth St Pierre have called the "post-qualitative" movement, where researchers attempt to "imagine and accomplish an inquiry that might produce different knowledge and produce knowledge differently". We attempt to rethink the thesis text, using a language where language always falls apart, a way of talking/writing/reading about presentation of research within a doctoral thesis that will provide the writermachine a space to "pass". The paper will provide some ideas and ways forward for writers who are attempting to deterritorialize research, who are attempting to experiment with new representational forms.
