Ethnographies are, and have been written in various ways. The crisis of representation and the rise of reflexive ethnography have led to a heightened awareness of textuality and genre. Clifford Geertz (1980) famously wrote about blurred genres, while Laurel Richardson (2005,1415) notes how ethnographic writing can morph into “auto-ethnography, fiction, poetry, drama, readers’ theater, writing stories, aphorisms, layered texts, conversations, epistles, polyvocal texts, comedy, satire, allegory, visual texts, hypertexts, museum displays, choreographed findings, and performance pieces”, to name a few.

The connections between ethnography and creative writing become most apparent when we look at ethnographies as texts written by specific authors with their own writerly voices, epistemologies and techniques. Autoethnography and reflexive writing make space for personal narratives and studies of authorship. Ethnographers, as well as creative writers, make textual experiments, build plots, describe characters and work with their senses to give the reader a felt experience of events.

This special issue of Scriptum invites researchers to reflect on convergences or collisions in the fields and margins of ethnography and (creative) writing research. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Genres of creative writing in written ethnographies

Possibilities of creative writing in producing, analyzing and representing ethnographic data

Ethnographic research of creative writers / writing groups / creative writing pedagogy

Ethnographic studies of the writing process

Epistemological, methodological and ethical issues in creative writing and ethnographic research

Language-based artistic research and ethnography

Autoethnography and creative writing
