About this product
- DescriptionEthgraphic fieldwork is something which is often presented as mysterious and inexplicable. How do we kw certain things after having done fieldwork? Are we sure we kw? And what exactly do we kw? This book describes ethgraphic fieldwork as the gradual accumulation of kwledge about something you don't kw much about. We start from igrance and gradually move towards kwledge, on the basis of practices for which we have theoretical and methodological motivations. Jan Blommaert and Dong Jie draw on their own experiences as fieldworkers in explaining the complexities of ethgraphic fieldwork as a kwledge trajectory. They do so in an easily accessible way that makes these complexities easier to understand and to handle before, during and after fieldwork.
