This contribution relates the authors’ experiences of applying a relational and scaling-sensitive approach to human service clients within the framework of a research training project with bachelor degree students in social work. By conceiving persons as relational (and not self-actional or interactional entities) and hypothesising that persons-in-relation-at-places-in-time cut the ‘world’ into scales of various ideational, emotional and material dimensionality, the basic question consisted of how persons as clients relate to and scale persons as professionals and members of so-called social services, and thereby continuously reinvent and covenante social reality. On the one hand, the presentation will put to discussion the pursued methodological movement by giving direct insight into the analytical process of transcribing, relationing and comparing. On the other hand, we will discuss the ‘merits’ of such a movement, especially with regard to questions of equivocity, ambiguity, hybridity or, as we would put it, fractality of social reality. Indeed, persons and places (or any other thinglike entity) take on a holographic stance depending on the relationalities. [less ▲]

In this presentation we retrace a process of ongoing ‘invention’ and ‘convention’ of a scaling-sensible text analysis. With conceiving of a relational world, the distinction of ‘subject’ and ‘object of analysis’ dissolves. Thus, the audience is invited to take a journey through various fractal cutouts of our relational world, in some way or another related to a pilot study of scaling-sensible text analysis. These cutouts are disclosed through three fractal narratives, each one taken on with a different fractal size. Thereby, we approach questions such as: What do persons do when writing scientific texts? How do they relate to entities they cut as ‘ontologically being’? How can we methodologically go about scientific texts, if we conceive of them as inventions, respectively as bearing ever singular ‘ontologies’? How can we develop a scaling-sensible attitude in the analysis of texts as well as in scientific writing? Eventually, we do not intend to give any definite conclusions or the like. Rather, we seek to suggest new pathways of analysis and to offer the audience various scales to think with. [less ▲]

Sociology’s knowledge-making practices consist primarily in cutting social reality (realities) into distinct, but overlapping and abstract entities, which are variously juxtaposed and micro-/macrofied depending on the underlying theoretical assumptions as they are “worked” by researchers. (Social) research as an ongoing process of cutting abstract entities is thus producing an almost infinite plurality of scales. In this sense, it is not surprising that we periodically assist at the emergence of new “turns”, from the cognitive to the material and the linguistic or emotional. This group addresses persons who are interested in working on how persons-as-researchers-and-theorists-cut-and-invent-social-reality. For the organizers, the work of Andrew Abbott as well as Marilyn Strathern has inspired the following questions: How do social theories cut, invent and try to covenant social reality? How is social reality cut, invented and covenanted in so-called professional contexts? How is social reality cut, invented and covenanted by methods of social research? [less ▲]
