Short Abstract:

Long Abstract:

This is a combined format open panel about ethnography and pedagogical experimentation. Inspired by a MA methods course where the final “exam” was a creative project instead of a written essay, and together with students who participated in the class, this panel invites research-in-the-making that can be collaboratively imagined during this session by using multimodal formats to think through it. Midway between a making-and-doing session and a more traditional panel format, we invite researchers to imagine their ongoing research, pedagogical experimentations, or future projects through creative methodological formats that can include sound bits, audio clips, photo essays, artistic creations, game sketches, scripts, or any other written or none written format that aids to communicate their research (findings or design).

Following critical pedagogies thinkers (York & Conley 2019; Gluzman 2017; Dumit 2014; Freire 2000), we invite participants to think collectively (during the session) by leaving theoretical abstractions suspended in favor of thinking through multimodal methodologies to open up unexplored or unsuspected new theoretical and political horizonings. We ask: what happens when we push ethnography into intergenerational and transnational conversations and collaborations that allow us to reconfigure current anthropological (via STS) imaginations.

We invite proposals from scholars at all stages of their career as well as from non-traditional academic paths, scholars outside academia or those focusing more closely on pedagogical experimentation to contribute to this panel with either an initial written abstract or a different medium (accompanied by a written summary if not self explanatory). If you are in doubt about whether your project/proposal fits the panel, please reach out to the organizers.
