This paper highlights the relevance of Mikhail Bakhtin's thought to doing and writing ethnography. It investigates the significance of thinking and practicing anthropology as dialogue. The role of the anthropologist both in the field and in the armchair is conceived within a Bakhtinian theoretical framework for authenticity. This discussion ultimately endorses the dialogical potential of anthropological work.
