2002 (English)In: Review of Communication, ISSN 1535-8593, Vol. 2, no 1, 115-119 p.Article, book review (Refereed) Published
Culture & Text is a stimulating book that sets out to explore the spacebetween “method” and “writing.” The focus is mainly on discourse analysis, andthe authors criticise it for lacking an awareness of the research method, how it ispresented and “en-acted.” The lack is supplemented by a post-structural move,which all writers in the book more or less support. What is offered is not amethod, because that would be a way of suppressing the “textuality” and theawareness of the research process. Hence, the proper way of proceeding is tomake a move, not to follow a method, not to aim at fixed systematicity, but toexplore different ways of proceeding..
