For Patricia O'Riley (2003), "making meaning does not mean more knowledge or information or discovering the deep structures. It has to do with listening, leaving space, being attentive, receptive. "Perhaps," O'Riley suggests, "methodology can offer a way to open ourselves to the else/where and other/wise of the world…" (p. 51). This elsewhere and otherwise can enable "ethical imagining" (Fawcett, 2000, p. 134) which includes voices of non-human Others (see Bringhurst, 2002; Russell, 2005).
This is a 'readerly text' (see Barthes, 1986) which invites, and often, through its design, requires the reader to pause.
