Abstract of the presentation:
This presentation identifies and compares different kinds of ethnographic experimentation. Departing from a discussion of the classic ethnographic fieldwork as a distinct form of self-experimentation in which the researcher’s own body and mind is turned into an object and a tool of exploration, I discuss recent attempts to draw on anthropological expertise in experimental set-ups, which seek to combine different scientific traditions and in so doing push to the limit and perhaps even overcome disciplinary boundaries and knowledge practices.
