Cultural Studies and Quantification

Toward a Diffractive Methodology

(p.49) 2 Cultural Studies and Quantification
Inheriting Possibility

Chapter two then discusses how the belief in the methods of quantification has not been widely shared in cultural studies. This chapter builds on the previous chapter’s new materialist deconstruction in order to rethink and reconsider the possibilities of quantification via a new focus for what Barad (2007) refers to as a diffractive methodology. It is via a diffractive methodology that the possibilities of quantification are enabled for cultural studies and critical social inquiry.
