Abstract [en]

THE PRACTICE OF BOUNDARY CROSSING AND THE MANDATE OF RECIPROCITY. EXAMPLESFROM ETHNOGRAPHIC FIELDWORK. In this article, the joint endeavour to con-struct knowledge in ethnographic fieldwork is discussed. It is argued thatsuch a joint project is self-evidently based on mutual recognition betweenanthropologist and informant, and that this recognition needs to be in-corporated into a narrative strategy directed towards a dialogical anthro-pology, in contrast to an analogical/monological tradition. The article, basedon one year of fieldwork among the Chinese diaspora of Penang, Malaysia,also discusses the reciprocity of ethnographic fieldwork and the reciprocalmaking of an ethnography in relation to an anthropological perspective onthe political economy of knowledge production. The article introduces thenotion of "eduscapes", conceptualizing global cultural flows in higher edu-cation and research. It is argued that these global flows are part of thecultural imagery of the diaspora and are incorporated into the local under-standing of the intervening anthropologist.
