In my previous reports (Crang, 2002; 2003a) I have tried to suggest that there is now a maturity about qualitative methods in geography, but also that there comes with this a certain conventionality of approaches. In this report I intend to consider: (1) continued debates about the framing of qualitative, and especially ethnographic, work, after the so called crisis of representation; (2) the spatialities of qualitative work; and (3) work in a performative vein.
