5 Scopus citations


This article is slightly modified from the Invited Egon Guba Memorial Lecture I gave at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) annual meeting in 2021. Drs. Aaron Kuntz and Juha Suoranta served as my discussants and their individual responses and comments are linked to this article. I think of this article having many potential provocations and imagined audiences while I intentionally did not carry forward linear and logical argumentation structure. Instead, I thought about qualitative pasts, many presences of today’s qualitative inquiries and I aimed to vision potentially more diverse and inviting qualitative futures. I wrote within and through interrelated plural flows of relationality, including speculative, experimentative, and methodological flows. Furthermore, speculative experimentation inspired me as one methodological possibility as it offers opportunities for creative imagination, critical hesitation, reflective questioning, and thinking with unthinkable futures.
