||In the context of ‘doing research’ ‘in the field’(/wild) and potential upcoming ‘intra-actions in the woods’, we would like to look at different methods of research used in fieldwork and writing. At the moment there seems to be a certain hype around Karen Barad across many fields (STS, art, culture studies, gender studies etc). Since it follows rather nicely on from our interests last year, we want to use this semester to explore a few of her ideas through specific practical examples. We are particularly interested in the way that methods and matter intra-act to produce the phenomena that we can know and in practices that reflect on the performativity of their methods. Through inviting guests to share their working processes with us, we will ask how these methods relate to what is observed, how they construct the entities produced and determine what we can know.
