Conférences

 

Advertising for Good: Pro bono, Worth and Morality

Dans le cadre du séminaire de Gisèle Sapiro "Engagements et désengagements : les professions intellectuelles et artistiques entre responsabilité et désintéressement"

Almost all successful advertising agencies in the United States perform pro bono advertising for not-for-profits. Based on almost 100 interviews with advertising professionals in New York, I argue that this is not surprising—there is an existential and structural fit between pro bono and advertising work. Such existential fit, I argue, is based on pro bono’s location as a good in the moral, the creative, and the careerist senses, and the ambiguity of « the good » this produces.

Community Ethnography and the Ethnography of High Skilled Work: A Comparison of Dilemmas

Dans le cadre du séminaire de Eloi Ficquet et Marie-Paule Hille, "La pratique ethnographique : questionnements théoriques et méthodologiques"

Based on a comparison of three ethnographic projects, the talk outlines the different challenges and opportunities of organizational and « communiuty » ethnographies. The comparisons socus on the challenges of entry, on what sociality and participation mean in these sites, on the different emotional tenors of fieldwork, and on the difference in data that result. Through this comparison, I suggest a comparative approach to the analytic opportunities and challenges of such fieldwork.
