Overview

Posthumanist Research and Writing as Agentic Acts of Inclusion: Knowledge Forced Open looks at the true value and possibilities of 'learning' and knowledge within the emerging field of New Public Governance by examining, through a posthumanist lens and other perspectives, the paradoxical knowledge situation we are in today. This book addresses the constitution of knowledge as an uncertain process, understanding text as spaces for entanglements of knowledge – knowledge not as certainty but as uncertainty – and writing as the act and art of engaging with these entanglements. Through examining research from multiple perspectives, text, stories as narrative are constructed as data – showing ethnographic engagements between writers, readers and texts. The authors show how to construct messy entanglements of continual, always already constant thinking and becomings, through the art and science of research and writing as knowledging processes. Suitable for scholars of posthumanist thinking in Education and the social sciences, this book challenges the academy to look at new ways of thinking with and through knowledge and showing the importance of such processes.

Reviews

"""With a more than important focus on positioning knowledge as a force and as a practice, thus involving an openness of thought that contests thinking in conformity, this book presents and guides a reader through a variety of examples of differing knowledge practices. The work of this book is to make comments about the paradox and fear of losing knowledge in what is currently referred to as a knowledge informed society. By challenging the reader’s minds and as a constant work in progress, the book should be found on the tables of scholars, students and other interested public. In particular, this is because the book represents a stepping-beyond the endeavours of traditional quantitative and qualitative research efforts to achieve validity, purpose and outcomes."" -- Marko Koščak, Associate professor at the University of Maribor, Slovenia. ""The authors pose the question as to the certainty of knowledge through the perspective of post-humanist research. This suggests that they are challenging the reader to consider the role of uncertainty in what they view as our current paradoxical knowledge situation given their predication of the view that the constitution of knowledge is itself uncertain. I find the ethnographic dimension - engaging writers, readers and texts - very interesting and value the focus that the authors have made of this topic within their work. Undoubtedly, we also need to look at new ways of addressing the cultural narrative and most commend this book on taking such a bold step in this direction. At the same time, it is important to view the broader perspective of the book - challenging the reader to seek new ways of examining our approach to knowledge and evaluating the process which we undertake to do this."" -- Tony O’Rourke, Professor Emeritus, Green Lines Institute for Sustainable Development, Portugal"
