Work, Ideology and Reflexivity within the Frame of Globalisation: Comparative Perspectives

This paper is an ethnological study of formerly tenured researchers in Uzbekistan in the academies of social and exact sciences set up during the Soviet era who have been retained as contractual employees. The study investigates work and economic relationships, the nature of the state, political constraints and the fear they inspire, the role of ideology and of the articulations linking it to science and knowledge. It also emphasises the epistemological importance of the methodological adjustments that are virtually imposed on the ethnologist.
