The workshop brings together ACCS researchers who conduct or are embarking on conducting fieldwork in conflict settings. We look forward to listening to each other, meeting old and new colleagues, and strengthening the relationships of field-based conflict researchers at the University of Amsterdam.

Conducting fieldwork in violent contexts

This workshop explores the challenges and hazards of conducting fieldwork in violent contexts. We start the day with the launch of the book “The Entanglements of Ethnographic Fieldwork.” Dr. Erella Grassiani (UvA Anthropology and ACCS director) and Dr. Nerina Weiss (Fafo Institute for Labour and Social Studies), two of the editors, will introduce the book, which gives field-based researchers a space to tell their stories.

At a roundtable thereafter, several ACCS researchers will discuss their and their interlocutors’ experiences of working in situations where violence, conflict, and war, are part of everyday life. The workshop concludes with a presentation by Dr. Milli Lake (London School of Economics) who has written extensively on the challenges of researching in areas of limited statehood. Dr. Lake also convenes a research consortium that supports early career researchers working on volatile or conflict-affected research sites.

Lunch will be provided. Please register by 30 April to secure your place.
