Ethnography in the Way of Theory — Cultural Anthropology

Ethnography in the Way of Theory — Cultural Anthropology | Peter Day's Scoops | Scoop.it

In this article, I return to my engagements with people in the field not only to address the specific circumstances and trajectories I encountered there, but to make a case for allowing our engagement with Others to determine the course of our thinking about them and to reflect more broadly upon the agonistic and reflexive relations between anthropology and philosophy. I do so in order to suggest that through ethnographic rendering, people’s own theorizing of their conditions may leak into, animate, and challenge present-day regimes of veridiction, including philosophical universals and anthropological subjugation to philosophy. I am interested in how ethnographic realities find their way into theoretical work. Using the mutual influence between Pierre Clastres and Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari as a case study, I argue against reducing ethnography to proto-philosophy. The relationship, in fact, may be more productively seen as one of creative tension and cross-pollination. This sense of ethnography in the way of (instead of to) theory—like art—aims at keeping interrelatedness, precariousness, curiosity, and unfinishedness in focus. In resisting synthetic ends and making openings rather than truths, ethnographic practice allows for an emancipatory reflexivity and for a more empowering critique of the rationalities, interventions, and moral issues of our times. I conclude with a literal return to the field and reflect on how the story of lives continues.  [ethnography and critical theory, fieldwork and life stories, exchanges between Clastres, Deleuze and Guattari, concept work, human becomings, the unfinishedness of anthropology]

Peter Day's insight:

I love this quote, "Just like in the "real world", the structure of an online community has a direct impact on the individuals within the community. Structure in online communities is quite literally written in code: the logic embedded in the software that implements an online community strongly influences how the community operates." I wonder what the author's think equates to the real world 'coding'?

Will the Ubuntu Phone Rock the African Software Development Market?

Will the Ubuntu Phone Rock the African Software Development Market? | Peter Day's Scoops | Scoop.it
Ubuntu is shooting for 200 million users by 2015, and with the announcement of the Ubuntu Phone and that they’re building the national operating system for China, there may be a lot of traction to be had.

Reading their material and watching Richard Collins, Ubuntu Mobile product manager at Canonical talk about what the phone will do, you can’t help but think that there’s something bigger here. Mobile phones these days are computers. Apple’s iPhone 5 has the same amount of processing power – and not just specs, but real benchmark performance – as the first generation Macbook Air. Ubuntu’s promise to make their OS available through a phone could be the melding of the two worlds that tablets have yet to be – the one device with the portability and power-consumption properties of a phone and the productivity of a desktop. Maybe.

The Basics of Self-Directed Learning for Teachers

The Basics of Self-Directed Learning for Teachers | Peter Day's Scoops | Scoop.it

One of the misconception about self-directed learning is that learners learn in complete isolation from others while in fact the core idea behind SDL is that learning is driven by intrinsic motivational factors  stemming from the learners own desire to learn and drive his/her learning experience beginning with recognizing a need to learn.
