How do objects unsettle? Or how are objects deployed to unsettle? Is such unsettling a quality or an effect? These questions are central to the six chapters in this section of the book. In this introduction I outline some key methodological orientations presented in the studies here assembled and discuss the key relations each chapter brings to processes and matters of unsettling.
