Short Abstract:

The roundtable aims at fostering a debate on how students and researchers in social sciences are creatively dealing with fieldwork in the face of current multiple overturns derived by the Covid-pandemic, fear of war, extreme environmental events

Long Abstract:

In recent years a multiplicity of unexpected experiences - pandemics, fear of wars, extreme environmental events, digitalization of social life, etc. - affected the global panorama, and consequently the way in which we engage in dialogues in the field. In this panorama, social actors are experiencing uncertainty and indeterminacy but also creativity in how they experience the interactions at the core of social sciences. In our roundtable we wish to foster an open discussion on how the above mentioned experiences might affect the dialogical potentialities of social interactions. We like to focus on how difficulties and fears may generate innovative forms of relations and knowledge practices, producing opportunities of transforming reality, redefining reciprocal positioning and experiences in the field, and renegotiating the place of speech. We invite contributors to suggest and share how they have coped with times of uncertainty, and how they found opportunities of dialogue in the field.
