The Informant as a Source of Knowledge - History and Theory across the Disciplines

-----------

The informant is fundamental for the production of knowledge in a range of human and social sciences. Different disciplines have their own regional theories, methods and ideologies about informants, how-informant based sources should be constructed and how the informants’ speech should be interpreted and inscribed in academic texts. However, the cross-disciplinary history and scientific genealogy of the informant as a pivot in the knowledge production of a number of human sciences, has not been investigated comprehensively.

 

The purpose of our workshop is to examine similarities and differences in how the informant’s voice is mediated and represented. Moreover, we will also be concerned with the informant as a common place that different disciplines turn to gather knowledge. What is the role of the informant in the production of knowledge in the human and social sciences in general and in the different disciplines that turn to the informant? What historical processes and genealogies of knowledge are behind the construction of the informant as a living source that supplements the authority of texts? When, and in what disciplinary contexts, does the need to supplement textual knowledge with the voice of the informant arise?
