     Writing as Practice, Practice as Writing:

     Conversations between Art, Linguistics 

     and Ethnography in Digital Space

Our presentation will address the relationship of writing to art practice through interdisciplinary conversations between an artist practitioner working in a research environment and a linguistic ethnographer working in an arts setting. Both researchers use auto-ethnographic methods through online blogging. This both shapes and disseminates their work throughout the research process. Although not the primary outcome of the research, our paper will argue that this type of knowledge production is itself a cultural object, as well as a form of practice.
