Cover of Book

Dr. Jason Lovvorn, associate professor of English, co-wrote with Dr. Kevin Leander (Vanderbilt University) a chapter in a recently published book, Data Analysis, Interpretation, and Theory in Literacy Studies Research: A How-To Guide (Myers Education Press, 2020).

Their chapter, titled “Following Texts, Bodies, and Objects in Everyday Practice: Thinking With Actor Network Theory,” reexamines a previously published study and focuses on how and why certain theoretical lenses were put into practice. The piece also highlights how literacy researchers might utilize Actor Network Theory as a way of framing their thinking in qualitative, ethnographic inquiry.
