I was delighted to be invited by Maria do Mar and the Center for the Study of Women and Gender at Warwick University to share some reflections about methodological and gender aspects of my PhD research. On the 6th of July 2018, I spoke about my experience in conducting ethnography and, specifically, the relational work which characterises this approach. I shared some stories about how I got access to the organization I studied and tried to establish rapport with informants with a special focus on how gift-giving practices underpinning these processes. Using this case, I discussed some links with current debates in (feminist) ethnography about reciprocity, ethics, and related dynamics.
