Abstract

In this symposium, we will reconceptualize our methodologies and research design centering histories in places, bodies, and disciplinary learning. We re-engage in qualitative methodologies that guided us so far yet limited us in fully accounting for the sociopolitical and sociohistorical nature of our research and analyses. This symposium challenges individualized knowledge production and invites the field of the learning sciences to bring forth collective and dialogic figuring and refiguring, co-thinking, and community/solidarity building. Four sets of paired dialogues will defamiliarize familiar methodologies in the learning sciences (e.g., video-based research, interaction analysis, ethnography) toward fuller consideration of power and radical transformation. These paired dialogues will also open new horizons on the role of arts and affect in research from the perspectives of histories in places and in bodies. Collectively, we will revisit the epistemological assumptions that shaped what were rendered visible and invisible in our research process.
