Actor‐network theory as a reflexive tool: (inter)personal relations and relationships in the research process
Abstract:In this article, I argue that actor‐network theory (ANT) provides an avenue to cogent reflexivity. I focus on ‘smaller’ networks and single links, those between the researcher and other actors, both at once enrolled to varying degrees in multiple actor‐networks. Using my own ethnographic research experiences, I show that ANT enables effective and pertinent reflexive translations of the research project.
