Poststructuralist and new-materialist approaches to analyses of bullying among children

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

This chapter offers inspiration as to how poststructuralist and new-materialist conceptualisations can be used analytically in qualitative studies of bullying in school. We base the chapter in theory with a particular attention to understanding complex social and subjective becomings, showing how such perspectives have helped us develop analyses of empirical material produced among students, teachers, parents and school leaders during many years of research in the project eXbus: Exploring Bullying in School (2007-ffw). The particular analytical approaches shared in the chapter points to 1) ways in which the development of theoretically informed analytical reading strategies work in relation to empirical data about bullying, and 2) the use of ‘situational maps’ to produce analytical points about the interaction between school and home in relation with school bullying.
