Sediment, subversion and suffering: Can the project be resisted?

In this paper, we seek to entwine a number of epistemic and practical perspectives around an activity that is increasingly the foundation of knowledge production: the funded research project. Specifically, we have chosen as our example a project commissioned and funded as participatory research, because participatory research in its full, radical, emancipatory glory ought to function as inherently subversive. And yet, to attempt such resistance in practice requires near constant, exhausting and stressful vigilance against the power of reason that resides in the sedimented reality (Butler, 1990) of “selection process and the public good” (Lyotard, in Fredrich, 1999, p. 46), which seem inevitable while the research ‘industry’ is dominated by positivistic modes of knowledge production that won’t legitimise alternative conceptions of knowledge.
