_____________________[PRO] Enacting the Social :: Performative Research

So what of research method? Our argument is that this is performative. By this we mean that: it has effects; it makes differences; it enacts realities; and it can help to bring into being what it supposedly discovers.

So the real is real enough. It is obdurate. It cannot be wished away. But it is also made.

We are concerned that sociology should not get locked into remaking a nineteenth century version of the social world. But this means it needs to develop an array of "post-methods" signified by the notions of "complexity" and the "elusive". - John Law & John Urry, Enacting the Social
