520 8_ $aRhythmanalysis is method of qualitative analysis which utilizes the body of the researcher. The subject of prominent French philosopher, activist, and sociologist Henri Lefebvre's final and posthumously published treatise, rhythmanalysis is an immersive methodology which enables the detection and identification of different types of rhythms of everyday life. Emerging at the intersection of time, space, and energy, rhythms are produced by body movements across the mundane and unremarkable terrain of everyday life. They enable researchers to become "metronomes" and detect multiple patterns of activity, which occur regularly and fluidly, in unison or cacophony, enhancing or disrupting each other. Using the subject matter of migrant labor in the agri-food industry, I demonstrate how a researcher might allow his or her body to be "grasped" (in Lefebvre's original vernacular) by a variety of rhythms. Specifically, I show how through my own experience of entry-level, food-industry work, I was able to recognize in others the rhythms to which I myself had previously been exposed, and through which I was conditioned and controlled. The case study showcases the significance of researcher positionality in studying the mobility and activity of migrant workers and argues that rhythmanalysis offers unique, albeit underexplored utility as a methodology.
