Something Old, Something New: Revivifying Ethnographic Fieldnotes Through ChatGPT
In this lecture, I intend to select an unresolved passage from fieldnotes in my career initiating research in 1970s Tonga, and to make it the subject of a ChatGPT engagement (whatever the state of accessible AI technology at the time) to see where it takes me in my longstanding interest in the durability of the ethnographic ethos of inquiry.
The time that always is and never will be: About historicity, utopian thinking, and the practice of Anthropology at Moesgaard
In this lecture, I reflect on the relationship between the human imagination and social change and the potential and limits of anthropological ways of knowing.
