Abstract [en]

Smoking, it seems, has taken a course over the last decades from being almost omnipresent into a place where it is found at the margins, if existent at all. This paper aims to address ethnographic possibilities and hazardous challenges in approaching smoking, focusing on practices and spaces that regulate the presence of cigarettes and effects of tobacco consumption. Building on three quite different examples of planned smoking spaces – found at airports, schools, and universities – I will highlight some pertinent issues of ethnographic fieldwork, including time (for smoking, and for ethnography, respectively), spatial matters, and what (anti)social relations related to smoking might tell us. Here, I want to discuss if and how designated but usually “empty” smoking spaces, where few if any people spend their time, can be of any value for an ethnographic inquiry of smoking. One related question is whether existing and crowded spaces might be too demanding – or even deadly – for the ambitious ethnographer. In sum, what possibilities are there to outline an ethnographic study of smoking that “balance” methodological concerns, curiosity, health, pleasure; how to describe and discuss complexities of cigarettes as they, repeatedly and for various lengths of time, take part in involving people in vivid spaces of social life as well as to bring them isolation and loneliness.
