In our concluding chapter, we reflect on the ways in which anxiety emerges as a key thematic across each of the chapters and speculate on the significance this holds. We document the position of our contribution (in time and place), and beyond this, speculate on the future of the field. Notably, we wish to pre-empt further collaboration across academic disciplines, particularly in respect of an alliance between social and natural scientists. Finally, we reflect on the politics of ethnography and the ways in which its decidedly progressive credentials have skewed its focus. Ultimately, we argue that addressing these ideological proclivities head-on will allow ethnography to expand its reach.
