Abstract

We consider the movement of metonymy within three academic contexts: research practices, disciplinary intersections, and scholarly identity and mentorship. By conceptualizing the movement of metonymy as pulse, we analyze both the structural movement of the trope as well as the movement of the constituent parts represented by this trope. Advancing the idea of metonymic performance, we consider the role of posthuman agency within metonymy as a way to theorize our performances within discursive, disciplinary, and personal relationships.
