Abstract:

Ethnographic fieldwork is something which is often presented as mysteriousand inexplicable. How do we know certain things after having donefieldwork? Are we sure we know? And what exactly do we know? This bookdescribes ethnographic fieldwork as the gradual accumulation of knowledgeabout something you don't know much about. We start from ignorance andgradually move towards knowledge, on the basis of practices for which wehave theoretical and methodological motivations. Jan Blommaert and Dong Jiedraw on their own experiences as fieldworkers in explaining thecomplexities of ethnographic fieldwork as a knowledge trajectory. They doso in an easily accessible way that makes these complexities easier tounderstand and tohandle before, during and after fieldwork.
