Collaboration (perhaps we could even go so broad as saying discussing/writing about our work with others) necessitates making explicit what usually "goes without saying." Cerwonka writes that her email communications with Lisa (Malkki) required her to make explicit things that usually go without saying. I find this to be similar to the process of doing work on / in PECE where we are forced to write out all of the assumptions and rationales for decisions made.
The passage below is one of many moments in the fieldwork correspondence where what often “goes without saying” is made explicit through our exchange.(page 3).
