Feminist speculations and interventions are not necessarily part of the canon of ethnographic methodology, but they are gaining importance in the wake of an increasing critique of postcolonial and hegemonic epistemic processes of knowledge production. What both ethnographic "methods" have in common is that they enable and are driven by a becoming-with in a more-than-human world. Feminist speculation is done from and with worlds; it is personal and situated writing that collaborates with affective states, experiences, and "others." Interventions, however, are situated experiments that produce epistemic effects that affect both research sites and epistemic regimes. In this talk, I will explore where the potentials (and pitfalls) lie for both epistemic methods as creative resistance.
