About this book

In this book, authors working with Deleuzean theories in educational research in Australia and the United Kingdom grapple with how the academic-writing machine might become less contained and bounded, and instead be used to free impulses to generate different creations and connections. The authors experiment with forms of writing that challenge the boundaries of academic language, moving beyond the strictures of the scientific method that governs and controls what works and what counts to make language vibrate with a new intensity.

The authors construct monstrous creations, full of vitality and fervor, hybrid texts, part academic part creative assemblages, almost-but-perhaps-not-quite recognisable as research. Stories that blur the lines between true and untrue, re-presentation and invention.

The contributors to this book hope that something might happen in its reading; that some new connections might be made, but also acknowledge the contingency of the encounter between text and reader, and the impossibility of presuming to know what may be.

His research interests include student and teacher identity/difference, post-structural theory, post-qualitative research methodologies, and creative approaches to academic writing. David's PhD study of international schools in Vietnam was awarded a Graduate School Dean’s Award for Outstanding Research in a Higher Degree Thesis and the N. V. Varghese Prize for Comparative Education, both presented by the University of Queensland, as well as the 2015 Illinois Qualitative Dissertation Award (Experimental) presented at the 12th International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry. He teaches in the areas of English as an additional language/teaching English to speakers of other languages, Indigenous education, inclusive education, and sociology of education.

Dr Eileen Honan is Professor of Educational Research at Fiji National University, where her work centres on supporting early career academics to develop their research capabilities.
