In this article, we approach ‘going public’ through a cultural-historical practice-theoretical lens. Focusing on the situated embeddedness of ethnographic researchers in various practice and academic collectives, we suggest ‘going public’ as an integral part of the situated processes of collective subjectivation and objectivation within which they are entangled. Drawing on Nissen’s theory and methodology of the ‘subjectivity of participation’ and enriching it with Rancières work, we suggest that researchers are ‘dissensually’ engaged in these processes. We unfold this approach with data from two (auto-)ethnographic cases, which highlight different moments of ethnographic researchers ‘going public’. The cases illustrate how ‘going public’ with dissensual or deconstructive research (1) implies precarious constitutions of researcher subjectivity amidst various collectives’ struggles for recognition, and (2) requires specific ethical considerations along a situated, dialogical and emergent ethics of care, that takes their/its mediatedness by model artefacts into account.
