Field of Exceptional Uncertainty: The Challenges of Early-Career Anthropologists in the Wake of the Corona Pandemic (Position Paper)
The position paper conveys the difficulties of
practicing fieldwork and ethnography in times of lockdowns, travel bans,
physical and social distancing to university administrations, funding agencies
and also the wider public. It is the result of a collective effort by all
organizers and participants of the DGSKA (German Anthropological Association)
Online Autumn Academy that took place in October 2020. The attached
document reads most complementary to the participants' blog contributions 'Fieldwork in Crisis'.
