Our presentation will address the methodological problem of Big Data. In our small focused presentations analyses and publications about Naming the World, the focus is on exquisite moments of encounter with children and their vital sensory emergent worlds. Even in a single site there are an infinitesimal number of these moments that have been recorded. When we come to consider the data from all of our sites, we realise that our data is BIG, and confront the question of what to do with BIG data. So we engage with contemporary discussions about data in relation to the phenomenon of BIG data in order to inhabit the binary of BIG data versus qualitative, postqualitative, and posthuman research.
