This creative and original book develops a framework for situated writing as theory and method and presents a trilogy of untimely academic novellas as exemplars of the uses of situated writing.

It is an inter- and trans-disciplinary book in which a diversity of forms are used to create a set of interwoven novellas, inspired by poststructuralist and postcolonial feminist theory and literary fiction, along with narrative life writing genres such as diaries and letters, memory work, poetic writing and photography. The book makes use of a politics of location, situated knowledges, diffraction and intersectionality theories to promote situated writing as a theory and method for exploring the complexity of social life through gender, whiteness, class and spatial location.

It addresses writing as an inter- and trans-disciplinary form of scholarship in its own right, with emancipatory potential, emphasising the role of writing in shaping creative, critical and reflexive approaches to research, education and professional practice. It is useful for researchers, teachers, postgraduate and PhD students in feminist and intersectionality studies, narrative studies, and pursuing interdisciplinary approaches across the humanities, social sciences, design and the arts to inspire a theory and method for situated writing.
