Accessing and Understanding the Field : Methodological Reflections and Ethnographic Approaches

The idea for this special section originates from the Autumn School on “Disrupted Ethnography: Building Trust, Telling Stories, Unpacking Concepts and Reporting from Within” at the Ruhr-Uni-versity Bochum (RUB) in Germany, 21–22 October 2021. Here, MEDAS 21 fellow Mira Keßler was awarded with funding from the RUB Research School for conducting four different workshops on “Practical Perspectives & Access to the Field,” which was supported by Germany’s Excellence Initia-tive [DFG GSC 98/3]. In exchanges with practitioners Jignesh Patel (India), Ramyata Limbu (Nepal), Mariam Barghouti (Palestine), and Mosa'ab Elshamy (Morocco), PhD- and Post-doctoral students learned from practical experiences in accessing and understanding a field.
