The introduction discusses the necessity of thinking beyond fieldwork and writing, which represent the habitual way of considering the life of ethnographic research, to ask what happens after the publication of the research, or more precisely what is involved in the process of publicization of ethnography. A brief history of the public presence of ethnography and the debates it has raised in anthropology as well as sociology is presented. The project of a public ethnography is clearly distinguished from that of public sociology and public anthropology. The stakes and challenges of going public for the ethnographer are analyzed. The introduction ends with a presentation of the structure and chapters of the volume.
