Too much talk about talk

Digby, R and McMahon, K (2017) Too much talk about talk. In: BERA Annual Conference, 4 - 7 September 2017, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK.

Abstract

Barad (2003) challenges the focus on language over matter itself. She proposes a performative understanding of discursive practices that contest the emphasis on talk and other forms of representation. This paper presents the application of such thinking in research on creativity in science with 25 practitioners from three early years settings, examining their discourse practices. The presentation will discuss the inherent challenges how researchers might respond when engaged with language in science education.
