Abstract

The post-qualitative turn, new empiricisms, and new feminist materialism, coupled with the interest in ecological perspectives, are all manifestations of a rapidly growing engagement with posthumanism. However, in such a theoretically and philosophically rich field, insufficient attention has been paid to the specifically methodological import of these debates. What do empirically grounded explorations of posthumanism look like in practice? How can they be designed? What sorts of ‘data’ are produced and how might they be analysed? And, importantly, what are the social, cultural and educational effects or impacts of empirically driven posthuman research?
