Abstract [en]

This article aims at exemplifying war’s violation of cosmologies as well as of people, and the ways in which experiences of war and violence are domesticated in cosmological terms as strategies of copying. I argue that the diverging experiences of the anthropologist and of her/his assistants and informants, can fruitfully be communicated through an intercultural understanding of the conflict at issue, and of its local implications. Such a communication can provide us with a framework for dealing with the uncertainties of research in war.
