Why is this important for how we conceive of educational research? e. the principal mode for communicating our studies. These should ensure that the development and debate of our research bears witness to its role as a key site for advancing and demonstrating ‘reflexivity’ about theory generation and appraisal. This is because theories are constitutive of researched knowledge, as much as researched knowledge is constitutive of theory. Recognising this dialectical relation both in text and in our epistemic communities requires the discipline of publicly tracing how theories were ‘seeded and nurtured’, ‘feed’ and possibly ‘weeded’, as together researchers and readers carefully examine accounts of what becomes received and accepted, and argued and critiqued, within and across disciplinary contexts and boundaries for educational research questions and practices.

Mus suggests that in Ramaekers’ terms, this is doubly problematic, as a demanding reading of educational research is that which, to qualify as such, requires demonstration of transformation, not just its potential. The stakes, therefore, are higher still: an educational research that endows reality with particular meanings, is research that is reflective of the cultural agreements and challenges that demanded, and demands, its enaction. Whether the design of such educational research can still remain largely a question of research design, or must be ‘troubled’ further by considering the ‘designs for research’, is playfully and insightfully addressed by Paul Smeyers.

Thus an epistemic community might look more like a place for allowing further and free(r) deliberation, unshackled for example, from ideologically- or ‘evidentially’ driven biases? And as before, all this, of course, amid the debris of many persistent and occasionally abandoned proto-theories, if not theories that no longer have the explanatory power and traction expected of them on the reality they are supposed offer knowledge about . .
