  • AO: A researcher who operates under the methodological premise of deferral allows for generative different collaborative confirgurations of ethnography (82).

  • AO: para-ethnographic communities that have a critical consciousness and novel registers of politics and experience (83)

  • AO: engaging with research “subjects” as “epistemic partners that define the imaginary and plot of our own inquiries” (83)

  • AO: Analysts mention that ethnography advances today by “deferring to, absorbing, and being altered by found reflexive subjects” (84)

  • AO: Unlike many of the discussions about “bringing together people from diverse disciplinary backgrounds”, these analysts interestingly note that they are not interested in collaboration “as a gesture to a canonical interdisciplinarity” (86)
