On 22 June, a dozen scholars will get together for Virtual Ethnography & Co, a one day event of the VKS, at the Wilhelmina-dok in Amsterdam. In preparation for this day, and as a support to the work that will be discussed, each author and abstract will be presented in an entry on this blog. (This is also a bit of an experiment with the possibilities of a blog). The author will have the opportunity to interact with her own abstract in this setting, modifying it as they wish, while participants and users can comment. Abstracts will appear every couple of days.
