Long abstract:

This panel explores the role of researchers' emotions and affects in understanding 'the field.' Anthropologists have widely discussed and debated fieldwork reflexivity in terms of fieldwork ethics, methodological practices, colonial traditions inscribed in ethnographic encounters and modes of ethnographic representation. This panel focuses on methodological and practical implications that bring to awareness the potentials of researchers' affects and emotions that less hinder than enable processes of anthropological and social scientific knowledge construction. The panel welcomes progressive proposals that constructively discuss researchers' affects and emotions, provides intellectual space for methodological, practical and epistemological debates and expounds the potentials and the limits of affectively aware scholarship.
