Between the Two PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Between the Two free pdf In this unique work, Ken Gale and Jonathan Wyatt bring together three areas of scholarship: collaborative writing as method of inquiry, the philosophical approaches of the French philosopher, Gilles Deleuze, and the performativity of both writing and the 'self'. The book is a reflexive exploration into the theory and practice of collaborative writing, with their between-the-twos - sequences of exchanged writings using a variety of forms and genres - at the book's heart. Their collaboration offers an experimental, transgressive and nomadic inquiry into subjectivities, engaging with fathers and fathering, mothers, childhood, relationships, religion and spirituality, and friendship. Based upon the authors' joint doctoral dissertation, for which they received an Honourable Mention in the 2009 Illinois Distinguished Dissertation Award, the book draws for its theoretical base primarily from the work of Deleuze, from both his philosophical 'figures' - such as bodies-without-organs, lines of flight, haecceity, rhizomes, becoming - and the insights that he offers into his collaborations with others. It also tells a story, conveying a sense of a relationship developing over time. The book will interest both academics and postgraduate students within the field of qualitative inquiry, including those involved in narrative inquiry, cultural, communication and performance studies, and autoethnography.
