Notes on developing a photo-ethnographic practice in Basilicata
Lorenzo Ferrarini

reproducing the associations between photography and objectification with which I opened this chapter. This danger is all the more present in the case of event photography, where it is easy to limit all relationships to the duration of the festival or ritual. I prefer to steer the cultivation of relationships towards dialogic practices. The term ‘dialogic’ has its origins in Bakhtin’s writings ( 1981 ), where it refers to the reciprocal interdependence between representations, and was an important keyword in the literature of the reflexive turn in anthropology (especially

From colonial to cross-cultural psychiatry in Nigeria

its contributions to decentring historical narratives and in its emphasis on blurring conventional boundaries between peoples and places to focus on shared characteristics and experiences, mutual interdependence and relationships between the local, global and ‘glocal’ (Hopkins, 2002 ; Manning, 2003 ; Mazlish and Buultjens, 1993 ). I contend that efforts to develop histories of global mental health, and of global health more generally, should actively interrogate the relationship between these layered perspectives and, in so doing, integrate the history of global

, for instance, a fast-growing body of predominantly very critically minded literature has discussed the supposed mutual hostility of and/or interdependence between ‘small’ and ‘thick’ qualitative ethnographic data formats and ‘big’ or ‘deep’ digital data formats in the worlds of computational social science (Stoller 2013; Erwin and Pollari 2013; Curran 2013; Taylor and Horst 2013; Boellstorff 2013; Ford 2014; Boellstorff and Maurer 2015; Abramson 2016). It is precisely this incipient discussion in the fertile transdisciplinary landscape between anthropology

the other hand, have fewer opportunities for bringing data closer to situated contexts in which it lives, but often have more complex computational repertoires at their disposal. There is a mutual interdependence at stake, even though these actors might not in the end produce a shared same social world. Numbers and narratives The longstanding distinction between qualitative and quantitative knowledge production lies in the background to this rejoinder of digital data and ethnography. If methods have a social life, this distinction becomes not an obstacle to be

Gender, movement, reproduction, regulation

carried out by kin evokes ambivalence and hence ambiguity. Kinship and family relations are infused with expectations and evocations of emotional attachment, reciprocity, and (inter)dependence, all underpinned by a strong assumption of morality. And even the kind of exploitation, unequal power relations, and gendered or generational violence referred to in the section above tend to be justified by an ideology of proper kinship or family order. The concept of ‘moral economy’ can be helpful in unpacking some of the complexities implicit in the entanglements of kinship

figurations, or networks of interdependence. As these networks grew, individuals became increasingly disconnected from each other and it became harder for the individual to understand the overall social context (Elias, 2001). As individual personality was asserted, social actors removed themselves from the wider public, a development which has been assisted by the increased range of privatised spaces available to individuals (Elias, 2001). However, this privatisation and individualisation necessitated a paradox. According to Habermas (1989), the ‘public’ became a space
