In physics, diffraction is thechange in direction of waves as they encounter an obstruction or overlap with other waves. Diffraction apparatuses are instruments that study the effects of such interference and difference. Drawing on the work of Haraway and Barad, as well as Uprichard and Dawney’s (2016) work on diffraction as method, this chapter argues for diffracting in research as participating, experimenting and inserting ourselves into the world. As such it provides an approach to research that acknowledges complexity and the researcher’s role in composing worlds.
