Methodological Remarks and Research Setting
The introductory first part of Disenchanting India ends with a chapter on the fieldwork conducted and methods applied. This fourth chapter reflects upon the distinguishing characteristics of an ethnography of a movement. Given the many ways one is able to move in and out of the field and follow the rationalists on- and off-line, in India and the West, in public as well as academic discourse, the research can be described as a “multi-sited ethnography”. Finally this chapter discusses the translation of key terms from Hindi or Marathi into English.
