Abstract

We will demonstrate, discuss and apply theoretical and methodological considerations for the creation of performative texts as a way to represent and disseminate the findings of qualitative research. We will focus on the potentials of engaging communities in the embodiment of artifacts from research through performative texts and provide an overview of the methodological tools and analytic moves that allow qualitative researchers to go from raw or analyzed data to script.
