Subject: Deadline Extended // CFP - Ethnographic Experimentation. #Colleex Workshop // 13th–15th July 2017

[list_name ]
Dear all,

We are extending the deadline for the first Colleex workshop for those who need additional time (CFP below).

We are open to receive proposals for both papers and formats until Friday 24 March.

If you have any questions, please contact us at colleexnetwork@gmail.com<mailto:colleexnetwork@gmail.com>

We welcome two different types of contributions, ‘open formats and interventions’ and ‘short papers’. Please send us a 250 words abstract using the provided forms:

------ 1. Open formats and interventions: Hands-on experiments to try out or develop for the purposes of discussion and provocation, which take place at the workshop venue. We welcome proposals from both individuals and groups. Please state your material needs and/or spatial requirements. More information about the venue here: https://goo.gl/IQBYKq
Open format submission form: https://goo.gl/kmIEzP

------ 2. Short papers: Reflections and nuanced meditations on the different ways and modalities of ethnographic experimentation. Participants should commit to send a short paper (3.000 – 4.000 words) by June 15th.

========= Ethnographic Experimentation. Fieldwork Devices and Companions =========

13th–15th July 2017, Jardim Botânico Tropical, Lisbon
First Workshop of the #Colleex.
https://colleex.wordpress.com/2017/02/03/ethnographic-experimentation-first-colleex-workshop/

- Deadline for proposal submission: March 24th 2017
- Deadline for the communication of results: Mid-April 2017


“Fieldwork is not what it used to be” (Faubion and Marcus, 2009). The investigation of previously ignored social domains and the incorporation of new sensibilities beyond its typically verbal or visual conventions, have expanded ethnography: Anthropologists now engage in novel forms of relationship and intervention, and enter into heterodox exchanges with other disciplines like arts and design. The invocation of experimentation in fieldwork is part of this widened exploration of ethnographic modalities that reshape the norm and form of fieldwork.

Recent invocations of experimentation in ethnographic projects are not merely a metaphorical gesture. Descriptive accounts of experimentation bring to life ethnographic imaginations that re-describe field informants into epistemic partners (Holmes and Marcus, 2005), remediate the form of ethnography in the company of others (Rabinow, 2011), or trade in the traditional comparative project of anthropology for a collaborative one (Riles, 2015). The experimental can thus be a distinctive articulation of the empirical work of anthropologists in the field.

To invoke ethnographic experimentation does not necessarily signal a methodological rupture with conventional forms of ethnography. We see experimentation more as a mode of constructing anthropological problematizations (Rabinow, 2011) and a distinctive way to explore modes of engagement in the field.

We would like to learn about the network’s experiences of what, following John Law and Evelyn Ruppert (2013), we call “fieldwork devices”: arrangements that assemble the world in specific social and material patterns for the production of knowledge. We would like to focus on thoughtfully designed interventions through which particular relationships, material artefacts, digital (or other) infrastructures, fieldnotes, venues, meeting practices, etc. assemble the world and turn ethnography into a venue for experimentation.

In this workshop, we invite all scholars (anthropologists and others) who resort to the figure of experimentation in describing their own ethnographic fieldwork practice, to share their experiences.
