Problems and Methods, Second Edition
Chapter 9: Tricks of the trade
The main message of the chapter is that methodology can be conceived as bricolage, as experimentation, and as a process of transformative knowing. I focus on those ‘tricks’ that in my experience worked better in practice-based studies. I illustrate three methods: the interview with the double, the ethnography of the object, and affective ethnography. I end the chapter discussing how most practice-based studies are conducted with the explicit aim to change the practices in a participative engagement with the practitioners.
