Title Det tänkande skrivande subjektet : Reflektioner kring metodologiska postulat, svensk genusforskning och post/akademiskt skrivande
Author(s) Livholts, Mona
Date 2008
English abstract
This article is an experimental and critical text with the aim of addressing methodological issues of forms for academic writing in Swedish gender research. In the focus of interest lays a methodological paradox: at the same time as gender research sets out to analyse complex issues of power relations and normativity, dominance and homogeneity, mainstream theory has continued to dominate through traditional forms of academic writing. The thinkingwriting subject can be understood as a strategy for academic writing across genre, stile, time and space, and a commitment to critical reflexive research practice. The article applies a personal narrative approach and argues for a post/academic writing strategy, which make use of a style and tone to present authoring as active and powerful, and as a process between and beyond personal, essayist and discursive. The interweaving of textuality, visuality, spatiality and voice characterises the process of writing, and doubts are represented as an important impetus in relation to time and change. The question of what is an author is elaborated through the text, for example by seeking dialogue with other researchers through memory and letter writing. The reader is invited to reconsider moments where the methodological postulate is challenged. The article concludes by providing the reader extra material about the article and the author.

Vad gör de vetenskapliga formerna och skrivnormerna med de genusvetenskapliga analyserna, frågar Mona Livholts. Med utgångspunkt i en personlig narrativ ansats inbjuds läsaren att reflektera kring det akademiska författarskapet, genrebegreppet och möjligheterna för post/akademiskt skrivande.
