Abstract

This is a multi-vocal document. It knits together theory and practice, multiple disciplinary traditions and vocabularies, and diverse manifestations of human knowledge – knowledge that lives in bodies and places as well as in books and libraries, in memories and in minds. While it remains far from presenting Foucault’s “adequate means for thinking about everything that is happening”, it does offer an argument for broader, more diverse “means” for thinking about things. The knowledges it contains emerge from diverse practices of knowing in a variety of locations – rural, urban, traditional, contemporary, visual, spatial, textual, formal and informal. Here, readers will find conversation between disciplinary thinkers within the Western intellectual tradition and knowers and doers speaking from the rural, vernacular and artisanal knowledge practices of everyday community life in western Newfoundland.
