Abstract / Description of output

Jane: You are not going to be up for this, I suspect/speculate but I think our epilogue should take the form of a dialogue that brings us, and therefore the book, right up to the 'now.' Here's my opening gambit ... see where it takes us? Jxx: Is this where this book is neatly summed up, tied up in a bow with red ribbons like a barrister's brief and sent out into the world ... or is it where everything that has gone before slowly unravels ... and all the securely hedged and bordered categories that have been set up over the last eighty thousand or so words gradually crumble into each other? It has all seemed like a coherent argument and the three sections at least-visual, written, and collaborative forms of inquiry-seem reasonably distinct and do not arbitrarily set up divisions. Why do I distrust coherence so much and why do distinct disciplines make me behave in such illdisciplined ways, if only in my mind's eyes? Perhaps speaking a little about the title of the book, and the arguments that we have all had about it, are the best way I have of answering my own last-minute misgivings with this project. You see, we started this book some years ago now and our thinking about much of what it contains over the decade that we have been collecting the contributions has changed/expanded over time. Yes, perhaps that is what I should be teasing out here, our relationship and thinking with theory over various kinds of time with the titles (of the book and its sections). What do you think?.
