Overview

Dangerous Encounters: Genealogy and Ethnography explores the methodological and theoretical relationships between the epistemology and practices of ethnographic research and the epistemology and practices of Michel Foucault’s genealogical method. Using examples from a number of disciplines, researchers who have attempted the demanding interface between ethnography and genealogy discuss their methods and ontological assumptions and rehearse their doubts and problems. This collection provides a grounded and useful introduction for those who would follow this dangerous research path.
