Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines a way to establish ethnographic comparability that involves a tertium comparationis. It starts out with an awkward dichotomy of ethnographic methods on the one hand and comparative methods based on a tertium comparationis on the other. The author has developed the method of multi-sited comparison during multi-sited ethnographic work concerning media harm in regard to children. The chapter aims to find a way to combine the ethnographic method with the comparative method based on a tertium comparationis. Short sketch of multi-sited ethnography illustrates the change in spatial constellation that evolved early ethnographies into contemporary multi-sited ethnography. Contrasting and juxtaposing has been fruitful in facilitating the ethnographic knowledge process.

Keywords: multi-sited ethnography; tertii comparationis
