*The English word dissertation translated to Swedish makes “avhandling.” When you break the word into its composite parts (“av” and “handling”), “av” can be translated to of, for, from, or with. I chose to translate it to “through,” because I have pursued my research through the actions of my practice (of action). “Handling” can be translated to action, document, or deed. I chose “action” to emphasize the continually shifting unfoldings of this research, and to echo Hannah Arendt, who maintained that actions have no end.
