Autoethnography, Personal Narrative, Reflexivity: Researcher as Subject

  Ellis, Carolyn S, Arthur Bochner. "Autoethnography, Personal Narrative, Reflexivity: Researcher as Subject" The Handbook of Qualitative Research. Once again, editors Norman K. Denzin and Yvonna S Lincoln have put together a volume that represents the state of the art for the theory and practice of qualitative inquiry. Built on the foundation of the landmark first edition, published in 1994, the second edition is both the bridge and the roadmap to the territory that lies ahead for researchers across the disciplines. The Second Edition is a significant revision; in fact, it is virtually a new work. It features six new chapter topics, including, among others, auto-ethnography, critical race theory, applied ethnography, queer theory, and testimonies.

Everyday environmental experience -  " The sum total of peoples’ firsthand involvements with the geographical world in which they live."  (David Seamon: A Geography of the Lifeworld )
Experiential Solicitation (in architectuur en design) -  (...) explaining how architecture can invite affection and stimulate activities. This might provide an insight into the affective qualities of atmospheres – bearing in mind that they evoke not only feelings and emotions, but also responses – action and bodily impulses. Since sensing atmosphere is related to the sense of “whereness”, referring to the character of space in which we find ourselves (Böhme 2005: 402), to design considering an atmospheric approach means to focus on how space is going to appear, to be experienced or to be felt. Hermann Schmitz defines atmosphere as a sum of ephemeral occurrences contributing to an integral and synesthetic perception of our surroundings, where environmental qualities are implicit and conditions and phenomena are bound together in a reciprocal dependence (1995 (1980)). These assumptions simply shifting attention away from expression towards effects and intensities, enlarging the domain in whic architecture manifests itself and revealing that the relation between the material and the immaterial is not accidental and extrinsic, but internal and meaningful already in the design process. In this context, architectural space is conceived as a contingent construction – a space of engagement that appears to us as a result of continuous and complex interferences revealed through our perception.
