Fielding challenges, challenging the field: The methodologies of mobility

27 - 28 September 2013
Oxford

Ethnography has long been the hallmark of anthropology, and most social science disciplines now routinely employ qualitative ethnographic research methods. While the ethnographic method has adapted to shifts within the discipline, growing interest in mobility-related research prompts new methodological questions in the field(s) of anthropology.

The EASA Anthropology and Mobility Network invites papers that explore how ethnographers are responding to questions being raised in the study of mobility. We are interested, in particular, in the ‘zones of awkward engagement’ between mobility’s methods and the production of ethnographic theory, and the ways in which ethnographies of movement may provide novel theoretical horizons for anthropology. We welcome papers that originally grapple with mobility at any scale and in both classic and unexpected settings.

This event is jointly convened by Jamie Coates (Australian National University), Alice Elliot (University of Leuven) and Roger Norum (University of Oxford).

The workshop is jointly organised by The Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS) with the Anthropology and Mobility Network of the European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA), and The Qualitative Methods Hub for the Social Sciences Division (OxQualHub), University of Oxford, Cultural Mobilities Research (CuMoRe), University of Leuven
