Resumé

Prisons inevitably leave their mark on all who pass through their gates. In this article two psychologists reflect on how prisons left their mark during our ethnographic fieldwork in developing countries. Via reflection on our own experiences the article advances the
discussion of the role of emotions in prison ethnographies. The article is based on a meta- analysis of field notes with a focus on emotional reactions as recorded and revealed in the field notes. Through this analysis the article illustrates how increased self-reflection
and awareness of researchers’ subjective experience can contribute to a better understanding of research as a particular, situated practice thereby enhancing our understanding of prisons and their consequences.
