Foregrounding Emotion and Embodiment in Feminist Data Collection

  • Elizabeth Sharp and Samantha Christopher

The affective turn in the academy (Cvetkovich, 2012) and within the social sciences in particular (Clough & Halley, 2007) has opened up a myriad of possibilities for feminist scholars to think about and "gather" qualitative data. In this paper, we will discuss two dynamic and flexible data collection techniques: walking interviews (Garcia et al., 2012;O'Neill & Hubbard, 2010) and emotion mapping (Doucet, 2001; Gabb, 2007). We will provide a brief background of and explain the innovative data collection techniques (e.g., Anderson, 2004; Jones et al., 2008) and discuss how said techniques map on to feminist sensibilities.
