Abstract

In this article we disrupt extractivist and privileged individualised knowledge production by decentering the human ‘I’ to ‘we’ through storying. By entangling more-than-human bodies, ‘we’ is re-configured through a posthuman praxis of an iterative metamorphosing Baglady storying collective. Starting with the provocation of locking and unlocking, we story as a way to make sense of political and ethical affectivities that disrupt and interrupt everyday materialities and spatialities. From here, we speculate with movements of response-ability as “intra-activism” (Renold & Ringrose, 2017, 631). For us, storying puts in motion intra-action, speculation, calls to act, relationality and feminist community building that we frame as intra-storying-activism. Making and re-making stories with intra-storying-activism navigates non-hierarchical post-authorship to re-imagine, speculate-with and trouble the human from extractivist positions. By foregrounding relationality as a multiplying storying, we create playful, dynamic and generative spaces for knowledge making as a collective that both welcomes and provokes calls to act.
