QUADROS, Laura Cristina de Toledo. A plot woven with many threads: the handcraft process of researching in the Actor-Network Theory. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.spe, pp.1181-1200. ISSN 1808-4281.

In this paper we intend to discuss the experience of researching as a handcraft practice referenced in the Actor-Network Theory (ANT), which gives us the understanding that a research may have deviations and recalcitrancy. Researching is an unique process, in which each field implies peculiarities and differentiated actions. We linked this practice to a handcraft doing in which procedure we don't have a linear path. We chose the 'crochet' - art of weaving with threads - as a feminine heritage that involves ourselves. As we understand that the modes of doing can only be followed in their own practice, we intend to discuss the process of researching in articulation with life, as an ontological politics.

Keywords : research; actor-network theory; ontological politics; practices in research.
