HANG, Julia. Reflexividad y relaciones de campo afectadas en una etnografía en un club platense . Avá [online]. 2019, n.34, pp.57-73. ISSN 1851-1694.

The article presents some discussions about reflexivity as a central dimension of the ethnographic research process. From the analysis of the methodological approach with which I carried forward my doctoral thesis about sociability and politics among the members of a social and sports club in the city of La Plata, I reflect on the multiplicity of forms that reflexivity was used during the investigation. If sometimes it operated as epistemological surveillance, as an exercise that allowed me to attend to the social and historical determinants that intervened in my scientific practice, in others it allowed questioning the monological authority to construct the central categories of the thesis in dialogue with my interlocutors. In dialogue with this discussion, the debate is presented around “using the body” as a methodological strategy for a better understanding of our study object, together with the idea of “letting ourselves be affected” by what happens in the field as a central instance in ethnography. Finally, a reflection on ethnographic writing is presented as one of the ways to achieve a better understanding of the social world.
