Dimitrious Theodossopoulos: From allochrony to possibility: confrontations with ethnographic nostalgia
Have you ever seen the present as a shadow of the past? As if the current social reality emerges from the pages of a previous ethnography? ‘Ethnographic nostalgia’ is an analytical concept that captures this familiar feeling: our desire to locate those we study within an ethnographic field, our longing and aspiration to transform the present into anthropological literature. We keep on trying to confine social reality to singular descriptions, interpretations, and analyses; and we apply our magic into keeping it alive. Does it work? Sometimes we have the illusion that it does. But how can we tell for sure? Ethnographic nostalgia is elusive: it involves a transformation of knowledge that engenders distortions—allochronic biases of all kinds—but also an opportunity for restructuring our understanding.
