Short Abstract:

Researchers and research participants shape their interactions in dynamic ways, dealing with expected and unexpected challenges, opportunities and affective interaction. Contributors in this panel reflect on their use of visual methods in the light of this 'condition of un/expectedness'.

Long Abstract

Ethnographic fieldwork always calls for improvisation. Researchers and research participants shape their interactions in dynamic ways, dealing with expected and unexpected challenges, opportunities and affective interaction. This panel explores the implications of this 'condition of un/expectedness' for the ways in which visual methods are shaped, ethnographic knowledge is produced, and research outcomes are used in specific research projects. Rethinking fieldwork as improvisation, the contributors reflect on their use of film, photography, and social media in the light of this condition.
