E. through deliberations on ‘hybridity’. Here that includes the hybridity work on French and Japanese identities that YamaMax’s members, explicitly and implicitly, carry through their employment at YamaMax. Through close-grained analysis of organising Introduction 27 a particular context or place, then, I believe that this ethnography may prove capable of addressing ‘hybridity’ more tangibly and more successfully than in its common academic use: where ‘hybridity’ is forwarded as a caricature of a qualitative, even ‘revolutionary’, shift in the present era due to an ill-defined but, apparently, particularly high rate of ‘boundary-crossing’ activity.

At no point did I consider recording meetings or any other event at YamaMax, and only on very rare occasions did I take photographs, none of which I use in this ethnography. Perhaps I was being overly careful, but I felt that the idea of such ‘hard evidence’ might jeopardise my colleagues’, or informants’, trust in me or somehow put them off in meetings. Furthermore, to be frank, organisational meetings can be exceedingly boring; all the more so, perhaps, as during fieldwork the anthropologist has nothing emotional at stake in their outcome besides the abstract hope that in the general gathering of information some nugget of insight, or perhaps an unexpected drama to break the monotony, may emerge.

Introduction 23 I began my discussion of ‘hybridity’ with the suggestion that I would, at least at the outset, keep it simple. I deploy ‘hybridity’ as I first came to it; innocent and unadulterated by its ubiquitous constructions in academia, meanwhile appreciating the social construction of meaning as a process required for analysis of ‘reality’. Although my perspective on hybridity has by now been caught up in a more complicated and interesting net, I retain the simple stoppage of essentialising my French and Japanese subjects, taking the Japanese and the French, compared the one to the other, as homogeneous, discrete and different forms.
