Den antropologiska metoden under lupp
Att sätta fingret på exakt vad som utmärker antropologisk forskning kan ibland vara en utmaning. I podden AthroTalking försöker vi finna svar på den enkla, men omdebatterade frågan: Vad är antropologisk metod?
Om avsnittet från institutionens engelska webb:
Anette Nyqvist, Titti Schmidt and Paula Uimonen on their approaches to ethnography.
Even after years of studies, students and researchers of the discipline might find it difficult to pin down what exactly distinguishes anthropological research. In this episode, we are addressing the simple, yet much discussed and at times mystified question: “What is the anthropological method”?
We talk to three anthropologists who are all lecturers and researches at the Department of Social Anthropology at Stockholm University but work within the most different fields imaginable: Anette Nyqvist is fascinated by work environments in which people wear suits. She has dedicated herself to organizational anthropology in both state agencies and corporations.
Titti Schmidt is interested in spiritualism and environmentalism, much of her fieldwork has taken place in classical anthropological sites such as forests and villages. Paula Uimonen was already interested in the digital sphere when it was still called the “cyberspace”. In her most recent publication, she examines the media usage of art students in Tanzania.
The podcast aims at demonstrating the range and diversity of anthropological methods while hinting at what unites all of them.
