In this talk, I will reflect upon what doing ethnographic fieldwork in a ‘non-classical’, ‘non-anthropological’ sense actually may entail. Drawing from my own experiences in the field, I explore what an ethnographic approach can look like when ‘complete’ immersion in the field (may it be temporal, spatial or social) turns out to be counterintuitive to, or even impossible for, the research project. In this context, how do we ground the qualitative data we achieve from such approach and what may this imply for the production of academic knowledge, such as is being concretised during the phase of writing-up?

This talk is part of the Fieldwork Seminar: Methodologies in the 'field' series.
