Writing Different(ly)?
2005 (English)Conference paper, (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In writing (e.g. a Ph.D.-thesis), you have several and sometimes diverging ideals, traditions and expectations to consider. Ideals, traditions and expectations related to the genre you’re writing in (science as opposed to fiction), the discipline (education), the theoretical perspective (feminist poststructuralism), and the methodological approach (discourse analysis), but also the time period (contemporary), the geographical location (Sweden, Europe, the Western world?) and, lest we forget, the form (Ph.D.-thesis), and possibly (probably) more. This “presentation” would have been readily available to you as you first see this article, glimpse the title, author-name and know the context in which it is being presented, even without me spelling it out to you as I have. My concern in this paper regards the possibility to write a text – thesis or article – differently. Questions that arise in relation to this are: What would it mean to write “differently”? Is it to do with form, content or something else? Why would I want to write differently? Further, is it possible for a Ph.D.-student to do so? What I would like to explore here is a notion of disrupting the reading/reader. What would that mean and (how) could that be accomplished? And will it add anything of value to the text/reading? Another question is, should one try to accomplish a disruption through one’s writing, and, importantly, why should one want disruption? Beyond these central first questions, there are others following on it, such as: Will the research still be considered credible? Will it be read? Will it be understood? Will it make the writer/researcher (me?) undesirable in academia? These are considerations one might want to take a minute to reflect over. I will address these questions as I explore the issues of writing different(ly) through disruption.
