Abstract

Postqualitative research offers opportunities for playful praxis—reconfiguring ways of writing, sharing, engaging in the physicality of data generation, the vitality of data matter, and the enactment of experimental forms of writing. In this article, data multiplicity is generated through an authorless haecceity of experimentation with and through writing. Taking a line of flight from an initial data event at a research conference workshop, the process of diffracting and cutting together a data envelops the researchers in spacetimematterings of the workshop, skypes, and emails. We offer insights into the “thisness” of collaborative writing, data, and some potentialities of intensive relationalities between human and nonhuman matter, textuality, and scholarship. We propose that writing a haecceity could function as a postrepresentational process that foregrounds the production of data while drawing attention to the movements and middles, the floating time that creates collective insights and material tensions.
