Abstract

Alternative forms of research writing that displace those of modernism are unfolded, ending with "multi-writing," which incorporates multiple genres, disciplines, cultures, and media to syncretically gather post/modern forms. Such alternatives represent a shift in academic values toward a more exploratory inquiry that honors mystery.
