This video is helping me currently in writing up my paper on Cluj. Yes, finally I am writing an article - not just a paper - on Cluj.
This helps me in a very peculiar way. Clifford is not giving me practical tips. His way of speaking, rather than what he speaks about, helps me. It helps me approaching my data with a nice distance which allows irony and urges me to step back from a too deep involvement into my data, just for getting back from them understanding that my interpretations were simply fantasies on what I wanted to find. Projections, in other - less anthropological - words.
I admit, when I see these people, when I watch this gathering after 25 years of Writing Cultures, for example, I feel more than just good. Even my heartbeating feels relaxed.
