In this interview, Riikka traces how thinking with concepts informed by Deleuze and Barad have taken her work into different directions, asking different questions and making new inquiries possible with children. We discussed her more recent shift to child–animal relations through her postdoctoral research, which has unveiled new kinds of questions and approaches to doing research with children.
