“Ethnographic fieldwork in post-conflict regions”
Travel writing and ethnographic knowledge
The lecture will give students insight into the role ethnographic knowledge (descriptions of peoples, their customs, political organization, language, in a word, of human diversity) played in different forms of travel narratives in the period after the 16th century, when it became almost an essential part of the genre, and into some of the reasons for this ascent. Also, it will look into the role travelers played in forming early anthropological discourse and beyond, as well as into points of continuity between travel writing and ethnographic text.
Ethnographic fieldwork in post-conflict regions
The lecture will present ethnographic research in several post-conflict localities in Croatia, with an overview of the historical, social and political context of the regions in question. It will also try to address, in discussion with the students, ethical, theoretical and epistemological considerations entailed in conducting research in post-conflict regions and dealing with topics such as political violence, forced displacement, traumatic experience, etc.
