The head vs. the gut: emotions, positionality, and the challenges of fieldwork with a Southern nationalist movement
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Social and Economic Geography.
2010 (English)In: Geoforum, ISSN 0016-7185, E-ISSN 1872-9398, Vol. 41, no 1, 19-22 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This essay explores the inner process of researching a group that is proudly white, conservative, fundamentalist Christian, and Southern. The recent attention to emotions in scholarship has not extended to the subject of fieldwork with right wing movements. I discuss my experience interviewing members of the League of the South and explore the extent to which my positionality shaped the interactions that I had with League members and informed my emotional response to the fieldwork.
