How to Keep the Story Going for Those Who Come After

“How to Keep the Story going for Those Who Come After,” is an experimental act of crafting an assemblage, cobbling together stories of otherworldly conversations/encounters, envisioning the production of knowledge as a process of arranging, organizing, and temporarily fitting together ideas and theories. Playfully unpacking the figuration of the salmon through its complex multiple contradictory identities, the author brings forth a deeper understanding of the entangled nature of the material and the discursive. The chapter is written diffractively in order to disrupt conventional historical forms of research narratives, instead holding together dispirit findings and presenting stories threaded through one another. Questioning the practices and processes of who, what and, why we teach, the author imagines the development of feral nomadic subjects able to hold together heteronymous ideas, beliefs, and theories in a generative society.
