Réflexions contre les paires antithétiques de l’anthropologie. : L’ethnographie et les pesanteurs du terrain à la Joutiya de Rabat.

Abstract : To what extent can we recognize the effects that the ethnographic relationship can produce on the results when the researcher is on a familiar ground ? What can we learn that we don't already know ? How can we liberate ourselves from our own subjectivity and ensure a process of self-unveiling that respects both local common sense and the need to obtain data ? This article questions the specific contingencies of young researchers working in the fields of which they come from, particularly in the so-called "Southern countries". Through an investigative experience in the heart of a market place in the medina (ancient city) of Rabat, Morocco, I present the disappointments of Euro-centric ethnographic practices when the young researcher native to his field claims multiple anchors. Whether it is about the naming of objects, analytical frameworks and theories, the article debates the hegemony of a certain form of "doing" ethnography and raises the dialectics between the knowledge produced and transmitted in European and North American universities and the degrees of its adaptability to all fields.
