dc.description.abstractIn this dissertation, I study those research practices and values which limit trans-disciplinarity among academics of science teaching & learning. I consider trans-disciplinarity an ethically imbued practice that enables thinking about the productivity of our research practices and makes possible flows of connectivity in the generation of our research landscape. To study our limits and their possible re-configuration, I make use of critical materialist methodology, particularly the approaches of genealogy and cartography characterized by philosophers Foucault, Deleuze, and Guattari. Specifically, I use genealogy to study the historical generation of norms in academics’-of-st&l research practices, and their influence on our current (2015 – 2018) landscape generation. Through mapping logics, values, and practices associated with our research norms and our material (e.g., affective, intellectual, and spatial) responses to them, cartography enables an explorative entry into how our research landscape is constructed, constructing, and re-constructible. Further, cartography possibly generates our increased awareness of how ethical contemplations involved in the minutiae of our practices make possible our resisting or enabling continued landscape differentiation.en_US
