A Proposition

Affective Dimensions of Fieldwork and the Empirical Affect Montage Thomas Stodulka Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology

It highlights fieldwork and ethnography as relational processes of encountering the so-called ‘other’ (i.e. the non-self ) and focuses on the advantages of using emotion diaries as complementary technique of data construction in addition to data emerging from more conservative methods.
