« Ce n’étaient peut-être pas des canards » L’anthropologue à l’épreuve de l’intersubjectivité

Abstract : This article explores the social and cultural fallout from an accident that claimed the life of an 18-year-old boy from the Nahua Indigenous village of La Esperanza in northeastern Mexico. The anthropologist, bereaved by the death of her godson, shares her sorrow with members of the society she studies. Between affect and reason, she tries to counter the inconceivable by relating a dense ethnographic narrative of rituals, social mechanisms, and emotions, those of her interlocutors and her own. This metadata ultimately forms the foundation upon which anthropological knowledge of the studied society is built.
