Parallaxic Praxis is a research framework utilized by interdisciplinary teams to collect, interpret, transmediate, analyze, and mobilize data generatively. The methodology leverages the researchers' personal strengths and the collective expertise of the team including the participants and community when possible. Benefits include the use of multi-perspective analyses, multi-modal investigations, informal and directed dialogic conversations, innovative knowledge creation, and models of residual and reparative research. Relying on difference, dialogue, and creativity propulsion processes; and drawing on post-qualitative, new materiality, multiliteracies, and combinatorial, even juxtaposing theoretical frames; this model offers extensive research possibilities across disciplines and content areas to mobilize knowledge to broad audiences.

This book explains methods, theories, and perspectives, and provides examples for developing creative research design in order to innovate new understandings. This model is especially useful for interdisciplinary partnerships or cross-sector collaborations. This book specifically addresses issues of research design, methodology, knowledge generation, knowledge mobilization, and dissemination for academics, students, and community partners. Examples include possibilities for scholars interested in doing projects in social justice, community engagement, teacher education, Indigenous research, and health and wellness.

Review quote

'Parallaxic Praxis' offers an overview of an innovative framework for research design. Its focus on interdisciplinarity, multi-modalities, arts integration, cross-sector partnerships, community engagement, and knowledge mobilization is exactly what is needed to tackle complex 21st century problems.

Based on a research model grounded in imagination as method, this bold and important book, dramatically and clearly moves a new tradition of post-qualitative research forward. Fully grounded theoretically, this book presents the reader with several highly developed examples of the parallaxic praxis model within different disciplinary traditions. It is a must have for all researchers wanting to reclaim humanity from a dehumanizing-technocratic reality.

Once again I am transformed by the work of Pauline Sameshima, Patricia Maarhuis, and Sean Wiebe. In their latest book, Parallaxic Praxis: Multimodal Research Design they present a model of inquiry that is relational, contingent, artistic, and generative. For those of us working in dialogic and relational research, I consider this accessible and profound book a must read.

The authors open a lyrical, transcendent, and deeply credible research framework complete with its own lexicon, modalities, and practical conventions. Prepare to re-think everything.
