Abstract

Primarily methodological in its orientation, this paper offers a presentation of ‘research outcomes’ in ways that challenge and disrupt commonplace notions of data and analysis. In an attempt to write against the grain of conventional qualitative research practice and to experiment with alternative encounters with data and analysis, I present ‘data/analysis’ in the form of a play (or imagined performance) that writes into being two Deleuzo-Guattarian principles - the critique of the self-conscious ‘I’ and desire. The play draws on a wider study that examined the potential of writing as a tool for learning for undergraduate student teachers in England. As such, the paper also contributes to debates on the practice and purpose of writing as a method of (professional) inquiry.
