But Does "Ethnography By Any Other Name" Really Promote Real Ethnography?
Keywords:ethnography, categorization, identity, difference, chaos and catastrophe theory, boundary work
AbstractCategorization—such as deciding whether something is real ethnography—is a difficult task, because nature and social practices, the topics of ethnography, themselves do not come with inherent labels. In this article, which takes its starting point in AGAR's contribution to the debate on the quality of qualitative research, I articulate and expose the aporetic and internally contradictory nature of categorizing something as real ethnography.
