The fieldwork

A field study has been conducted at a Bosnian university in order to investigate the impact of nationalism and cosmopolitanism on information sharing practices in academic communities. Latour’s circulatory system of scientific fact was a useful tool to extract a number of narrative episodes from the fieldwork. This chapter reports the narrative episodes through five loops of the circulatory system: mobilisation of the world, autonomisation, alliances, public representation, and links and knots. The main aim of inclusion of a narrative was to illustrate scholars’ activities within a particular loop, although the activities in all loops were interconnected.
