Analysing constellations: Seeing axiological and epistemological meanings

This hands-on workshop will focus on how we can ‘see’ constellations of meaning and analyse them in text. It will:
● First introduce the concepts of constellations, charging and cosmology, in terms of how they organise knowledge,
● Second, hone in on two types of constellation: axiological constellations that organise meanings associated with political, moral, aesthetic, or affective stances; and epistemological constellations that organise meanings associated with specialised empirical, technical or procedural knowledge.
● Third, introduce a small set of analytical tools for teasing out the relations between meanings in text and show how this can help us build a ‘map’ of a constellation.
● Fourth, give you an opportunity to dive in, have a go and get your ‘hands dirty’ at building constellations from texts from across a range of fields.
