Abstract: This working paper has two main challenges: a) resume two contemporary theories to b) glimpse new developments from their integration. First, we resume the figurational theory proposed by the German sociologist Norbert Elias trying to highlight how disruptive and innovative his ideas are. Second, we resume the developments of the (social) network studies. Third, we seek to link both theories so they aid each other achieving new devel-opments. We illustrate the last step trying to convert part of Elias’ arguments in Mozart, Zur Soziologie eines Genies in a network. The expected outcome is on the one hand, Eli-as’ figurational theory gain applications with calculus and visualization elements from the network studies. On the other hand, the social network studies gain theoretical robustness with Elias’ theory.

"Theories about Theory: Accounts of how Political Theory Affected the Presidency of James Madison" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Marriott, Loews Philadelphia, and the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA, Aug 31, 2006 <Not Available>. 2018-11-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p151849_index.html>

Abstract: In this paper I define three different types of theory about theory based on scholarship about James Madison. The theories about theory suggest different ways in which theory affects the "real world." A "content based theory" suggests that politicians accept and use ideas from specific political theorists. A "nature of theory itself" argument, by contrast, suggests that it is the act of theorizing that produces the effect. Attention to Madison scholarship reveals two different kinds of nature of theory itself arguments. A "pure" nature of theory itself argument suggests that theory and theorizing almost inevitably has a certain effect on those who do it and the politics which results when political leaders theorize. An "affiliated" nature of theory itself argument is much more circumscribed. Its only claim is that an individual politician's theoretical bent has affected that individual in a particular way. I stress that the demonstration of each kind of argument depends on different kinds of evidence and that while any of these arguments may be made poorly or well, the amount and type of evidence required to demonstrate a pure nature of theory itself claim is so extensive, that such arguments have remained suggestive.

"Moving Sideways: Methodological Wayfaring, New Ethnographic Writing, NonRepresentational Theory, Weak Theory, and ActorNetwork Theory in Educational Research" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Eighth Annual Congress of Qualitative Inquiry, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois, May 16, 2012 <Not Available>. 2018-11-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p558625_index.html>

Abstract: In this paper and presentation I outline several of the sideways moves I used in my dissertation work. While critical and postmodern epistemological orientations resonated with me more than positivist or interpretivist ones did I still felt like they were still too dependent upon the dominant meta-narratives of research. The notion of a sideways move comes from the work of Kathleen Stewart. She writes of methodological and analytical actions which create a form of address that varies from the typical knowledge projects in social science research. From this beginning I describe my methodological wayfaring and how I used New Ethnographic Writing, NonRepresentational Theory, Weak Theory, and ActorNetwork Theory in my efforts to engage in educational research
