Sammanfattning

Research is always based upon some kind of material; in ethnology it can be of widely different characters. This is something that connect the ethnology of the past as we know the discipline from early and mid 20:th century with ethnology of today. Collecting of material is made in a context that is characterized by spirit of the time, scientific environment and the individual researcher's prerequisites and networks. But what matters in the research material? And how is the research process influenced by the characteristic of the material? Can a material collected with a special aim for a specific project be re-used in other projects? Our aim is to explore how the research process is affected by the material, and how the material is affected by the research process and the researcher. Is it possible to separate collecting of material from production of scientific knowledge? Which are the stages in the collecting of material, and when does it become scientific production? Are the scholars own driving forces discernible in the result? This session invites papers (in English as well as the Scandinavian languages) that address aspects of research material – collecting, sources of knowledge, inventories, documentation, as well as the relation between the material and the production of scientific knowledge and research outcomes and results. We are welcoming papers concerning questions related to the history of our discipline as well as papers that reflect both ethnology of today, and the future.
