Responding to K Affs and Counter Methodologies

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

My team recently faced a team which ran a K Aff, and after the round, the judge said that we should have run a counter-methodology. I was wondering what a counter-methodology is, and how I can make/find one.

 

Also, are there any other generic ways to respond to K affs?

 

Thanks,

A counter-methodology is exactly what it sounds like, a counter method to the affirmative. For example, the affirmative could say that we need to embrace intralocality (questioning ones social location and implication in structures of whiteness) in order to break down systems of whiteness. The negative could read a counter-advocacy or counter-method that could be anything from Orthodox Marxism to a performance that entails music/poetry/etc. that liberates the masses. Think of it as a critical counterplan (not agent or any of that cheating stuff) but a different method for combating a specific form of oppression.
