Brokers and breakers of war stories in Acholiland, northern Uganda
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Department of Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology. (Engaging Vulnerability)

Abstract [en]

This article describes the tension that built up between two European journalists who had teamed up to shoot a documentary on the entanglement of war and humanitarian interventions in Acholiland, northern Uganda, with the fieldworking anthropologist as the local broker of the documentary project. The article also examines a parallel disconnect developing between the journalists and the Ugandans they encountered. From the perspective of the broker/anthropologist, it is argued that research ethics and the methods of data collection interact in ways that have real consequences, and that a scrutiny of this interface exposes a paradoxical vulnerability of research as such.
