What is a research platform? Mapping methods, mobilities and subjectivities

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This article provides an account of the question of method as it relates to collective

    modes of research organised, conceived and produced through the interplay between

    digital technologies of communication and offline strategies of investigation. It does

    so by exploring the orchestration of research platforms, which are mediating devices

    that constitute the production of knowledge across a range of geocultural settings. In

    the context of a project entitled Transit Labour: Circuits, Regions, Borders, the article

    maintains that research methods must contend with the ideological, technological

    and economic instruments that condition knowledge production at the current

    conjuncture. The platform, we argue, operates as a medium through which research,

    labour, subjectivity and knowledge are shaped in ways specific to hardware settings,

    software dynamics and the materialities of labour and life.
