Titel: ethnoGRAPHIC fieldnotes
Abstract: This papertakes point of departure in a collection of drawn notes made during myfieldwork in northern Uganda 2014-2016 ( explore what is captured in the drawings, which revolve around concretesituations as I experienced them during fieldwork. To use thin pens andwatercolors has allowed me to capture non-verbal aspects of fieldwork -atmospheres and moods - in a non-verbal way. The drawings consist of excerptsof conversations between my interlocutors and me, material detailscharacteristic of my field, shades and light, and small, personal comments. Theyare made by my hands, but they spring from actual encounters. In this sense,the drawn notes reflect a mix of what is drawn and the drawer.To draw create a space for reflection for thedrawer that is not only based on verbalization and to look at drawings spur thereader’s curiosity in a different way than words do. Therefore, I argue that drawnnotes are highly relevant in relation to ethnographic methodology as well asrepresentation.
