The difference between the researcher’s activities and those of the other participants is that the ethnographer will eventually leave the empirical field to discuss what he or she has learned with fellow researchers in the analytical field. Anthropologists do not stay in the empirical fields they visit – but they do stay in the analytical fields. Analytical cuts made in the analytical field (like the concept of culture) may be of interest to the participants in the empirical field, and they may even use the conceptualisations that are constructed in the analytical field, but they are engaged in their own everyday activities.
