Poethical: Breaking Ground for Reconstruction
Krojer, Jo; Holge-Hazelton, Bibi
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v21 n1 p27-33 Jan 2008
Departing from a methodological experiment performed by the authors, this article reflects on and discusses issues of ethics and politics in poetic strategies of "representation". In relation to the experiment the article questions how to conceive the notion of connectedness between empirical time and the reconstruction of it in poststructuralist research. In continued reflection the article elaborates on the meaning and status of body and emotion in poststructuralist, feminist research. The article digs further into questions of poststructuralist epistemology and validity, and asks if poetic, open-ended ways of presenting lived experience are especially ethical. These reflections lead to a discussion of the possibility of complex and ambiguous poetic representations being politically influential, i.e. how this research can matter to others.
