Abstract:

In this article I draw on my own fieldwork in child support agencies to examine the epistemological implications of ethnographers’ use of case records in bureaucratic field settings. I conceptualize case records as a locus of social practice, rather than simply social artifacts or documents, by researchers as well as research subjects. Thus the researcher’s as well as subjects’ practices in the production and use of case records are a primary source of data. I analyze how aspects of my positionality in the field and specific features of the case records themselves shaped the research questions I asked and the knowledge claims I produced.
