Abstract:

Ethnographic fieldwork is something which is often presented as mysterious
and inexplicable. How do we know certain things after having done
fieldwork? Are we sure we know? And what exactly do we know? This book
describes ethnographic fieldwork as the gradual accumulation of knowledge
about something you don't know much about. We start from ignorance and
gradually move towards knowledge, 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 ethnographic fieldwork as a knowledge trajectory. They do
so in an easily accessible way that makes these complexities easier to
understand and to
handle before, during and after fieldwork.
