Mo(ve)ment ethnography and researcher positioning- a transmethodological take?

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch

Transmethodology can be understood as an approach that encompasses how research processes are fueled by an ever changing and transgressive interaction between the analytical, empirical and theoretical engagement in the field of study. In this paper, we engage with transmethodology on different levels. Firstly, we do this by working with different theoretical traditions and moving beyond them. We combine theories on religion as everyday life practice, poststructuralist theories of othering, and a social practice theoretical focus on dilemmas and possibilities as part of the conduct of everyday life. Secondly, we work with and through our different positionalities, possibilities and limitations for creating collaborations, trust and access. Our researcher positioning is not only reflected in our different theoretical standpoints, but also in regard to our co-researchers’ (non)questioning of our racial, ethnic, religious, political, activist and personal backgrounds. We use these categories differently in the field. Thirdly, we work with an ethnographic mo(ve)ment methodology which focuses on moments and movements in the subjects’ life stories, which enables theoretical analysis of processes of identity transformation.
