Short abstract:

A role-playing performance to create the grounds for a discussion around the figure of ethnographic experimentation in fieldwork.

Long abstract:

Have you been affected by Ethnographic Experimentation Breakdown (EEB) or Excess of Engagement Stress (EES)? Have you been suffering from breach-of-the-canon infection (BOTCA)? Do you know how to detect Goingnativosis (GN), the Collaborative Fieldwork Disorder (CoFD) or Transdisciplinary/Interdisciplinary Associative Disorder (TRIAD)? Perhaps you know of somebody who is affected by Non-observatory, multi-sensory, too-material fieldwork syndrome (NO-MS-TM)? If you have been quarreling with your supervisor and colleagues over their effects, if you are being chased by your former informants to hang around as if no distance separated you, why not try a radically different approach, and search for the better cure? CLEENIK is searching for "sick" ethnographers interested in donating their time for science, sharing their suffering experiences, and helping others find the #xcol™ cure! For this, you would be receiving a treatment FOR FREE in our internationally renowned CLEENIK, an institution with the most innovative experimental collaboration techniques for the treatment of contemporary fieldwork disorders. CLEENIK will be a laboratory in one single session to create the grounds for a discussion around the figure of ethnographic experimentation in fieldwork. For this, we ask participantsto share the diseases they have suffered in their fieldwork. As a closure, we will propose the construction a network of Ethnographic Experimentation.
