Event description

Description

Please join us for our Department of Arts and Humanities Distinguished Speaker Series, with Janet L. Miller, Professor of English Education, for her lecture followed by a light reception.

About the Lecture:

Qualitative researchers have grappled for decades now with imperatives generated by “the crisis of representation.” Thus, researching and its accompany writings continue to require “reflexivities of discomfort” – that is, interrogations of often habitual preoccupations, expectations, suppositions, fantasies that affect both our researching and the “writing up” of such efforts. But such questionings in no way are intended as means to guarantee “more accurate, truthful, decolonized” narrations of “self” and “other.” Rather, such reflexive practices also compel examinations of historically, culturally and socially contingent influences on all aspects of preparing for as well as engaging in research and its always-fraught representational writing endeavors.

Re-turning, in part, to Roland Barthes and his lectures on “The Preparation of the Novel,” I consider several on-going research projects in light of my entangling socialities, reflexivities of discomfort and (im)possible composings.
