Ethnographic Evidence in the Americas:
On the aesthetics of methods and crafting of claims
March 30 - April 2, 2022
Gainesville, FL

This conference seeks to question tacit assumptions about the nature of empirical worlds that continue to constrict imaginative potentials and research horizons of ethnographic fieldwork. By bringing together scholars, writers, artists and performers working across institutional fields and thematic regions, we will collectively reconsider ethnography’s generative currency as method, evidence, and aesthetic sensibility across the Americas.
