Into the Labyrinth : A PhD Comprehensive Portfolio


Deleuze and Guattari (1987) posit the concepts of "rhizome" and "rhizomatic" to describe research that suggests various, non-linear, non-hierarchical forms, multiple entry and exit points, and multiplicity in research representations and interpretations. As a philosophy, rhizomatics "seeks to interrupt linear, normative ways of thinking about human phenomena, ontology, and epistemology" (Strom & Martin, 2017, p. 2). Rhizomatics focuses on questions relevant to context, function, and production (Strom & Martin, 2017). Ovens et al., (2016) explore three concepts relevant to rhizomatics - assemblage, becoming, and lines of flight - that connect, but are not explicitly integrated into this comprehensive portfolio
