During the pre-conference we want to discuss how you do thinking with theories and humans (e.g., researchers, colleagues, teachers, artists, students) (Jackson & Mazzei, 2017). Our previous experiences as researchers have made us wonder about doing theoretical and analytical involvements together. We have collaborated in physical locations (e.g., campuses, cafés) and in digital spaces (e.g., messenger, Zoom, Teams). These moments have created a focus and energy because we bring with us what we have been reading and thinking of between our meetings and writing sessions. We feel challenged when trying to explore what it is we do together. One way to understand it is through mo(ve)ments of openness, of embodiedment where we are open when listening to each other and being together (see Wyatt et. al, 2011). These moments may offer openings towards shifts that make us re-think or dig deeper into theories and see the materials in studies different.
We would like to discuss how other researchers think-with-theories and/or with humans and how they unfold their studies?
