Ethnography of an Absence

Ethnography has undergone many transformations and been increasingly subject to experimentation in contemporary time (Marcus 1986). Recently, modes of knowledge communication in anthropology are proliferating and dispersing, conceptualizing ethnography in myriad forms (Clifford 1988). Resulting from undergraduate research conducted over the summer of 2015, this paper takes up unconventional ethnographic methods and theoretical frames as its point of departure for tracing the residual aura of the horse in Athens, and experimenting with approaches to the study of an absence.
