 Even when our ethnographic work is explicitly aligned with projects of justice and liberation, our texts can develop lives of their own—appropriated for ends we cannot predict. Taking up Fassin’s (2015) call to attend to the “public afterlife of ethnography,” this talk engages the various ways Professor Shange’s recent book Progressive Dystopiahas has been taken up by research participants before and after its publication. Given both the disappointing and edifying ways the research has been used, Professor Shange underscores the limits of ethnography as a form and speak to the possibility of abolition as a practical stance of engaging in quotidian worlds
