The Wonder of Method
Pearce, Cathie; MacLure, Maggie
International Journal of Research & Method in Education, v32 n3 p249-265 Nov 2009
Postmodern and deconstructionist approaches are necessarily concerned with "making visible" and working with marginalized "others". This article explores how theory as method might enable us to revisit methodological approaches that have conventionally relied upon semantic readings of the text. Deconstruction clears the way for such approaches without necessarily providing an optimistic or hopeful way forward. This article seeks to explore how we might offer some new ways of thinking "human" "agency" "subject" in a creative assemblage of mind, body, world, and where encounters with the "unthought" "unknown" "uncertain", and "unclear" need not be paralyzing but a call towards a wonder of methodology itself. (Contains 4 figures and 5 notes.)
