Global Ethnography 2.0: From Methodological Nationalism to Methodological Materialism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The purpose of this chapter is to provide a model for incorporating materiality into the ethnographic study of globalization. Such a theoretical and methodological task is necessary for two reasons. First, it provides a corrective to the depiction of globalization as transcending material constraints or, allegedly having homogenized the world, as neutralizing place-based, concrete conditions of production.1 Second, such an incorporation is a useful tool in transcending methodological nationalism.
