Queer anthropology has yet to contend in a substantial way with disability, ableism, and crip critique. While incorporating crip analytics into scholarship gets closer to a “queer, crip” anthropology, taking these analytics seriously requires that anthropologists dismantle and reconstruct the methodologies of their work. Current methods in queer anthropology adhere to the norms of sociocultural anthropological research in that a single anthropologist is solely responsible for all parts of knowledge production. Should anyone want to counter the effects of ableism as it’s bound up with colonialism, racism, capitalism, xenophobia, and heteropatriarchy, this chapter argues that one has to be more promiscuous and start doing it together. The chapter describes an ongoing experiment in collaborative ethnography to offer ideas for how other queer anthropologists might cultivate radical multi-ability intimacies through research on the way to creating anthropology otherwise.
