Short abstract:

This work aims to focus how fieldwork has an important role in building a cultural dialogue that try to result in an “encounter” that is as symmetrical as possible. Being there and write here leads us to methodologies which necessarily involve interpretation arc where the complicity is required. How to build this interpretative arc? How to build the complicity?

Long abstract:

This sessions aims to focus how fieldwork has an important role in building a cultural dialogue that try to result in an “encounter” that is as symmetrical as possible. That “encounter” is plenty of tension and conflict. In face of this how can we rear dialogue? Being there and write here leads us to methodologies which necessarily involve interpretation arc where the complicity is required and, at the mean time, write here presents us with a distant view necessary for an analysis that can bring some light on this reality. In the process of coming and going, proximity and distance leads to the process of deconstruction/construction, a consequence of the tense meeting between polyphony and polysemies. This panel welcomes works that wants to discuss about field-work and the necessity to try to raise some kind of “new’ approach about the “others” even the “others” is “ourself”.
