MORAES, Marcia  and  TSALLIS, Alexandra C.. Storytelling, populate the world: academic writing and the feminine in science. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2016, vol.6, n.spe, pp. 39-51. ISSN 2238-152X.

This paper problematizes academic writing by arguing that writing is an inherent part of research. Based on considerations of Haraway (2008, 1995), Mol (2008) and others, we posit that writing is a sited and marked practice. In agreement with embodied perspective researchWITH methodology guidelines, we postulate that storytelling is one way of relating research. In the field of visual disability, to narrate embodied stories of seeing and non-seeing allows the researcher to question disembodied versions of disability as lack or deficiency. We propose other grammars for academic work and affirm that the ‘female’ take on science is a way of marking knowledge, of rendering explicit the mediations that make knowledge possible.

Keywords : Academic Writing; ResearchWITH; Storytelling; Visual Disability.
