This chapter aims to diversify the concepts and practices of sampling and data to illustrate their multiple connections to theories, processes, world views, and subjectivities. The ways data and sampling are approached and used in qualitative research are based on important choices scholars make. Data and sampling processes’ intertextuality and relationality can create links to histories, discourses, other scholars, diverse materials, with endless traces of conceptual and practical differences. The call for logical and rational approaches to sampling and data is often challenged by the affective, sometimes surprising relationalities that is produced on/with scholars. Finally, we aim to illustrate what these thoughts/doings/entanglements might produce in/out/through/beyond readily available and normative views of sampling strategies and data in qualitative research.
