Abstract Obwohl es schon eine große Zahl soziologischer Untersuchungen der Arbeit in naturwissenschaftlichen Laboratorien gibt, wurde die professionelle Praxis der Mathematik bislang noch wenig erforscht. Ich möchte hier drei verschiedene methodologische Vorschläge unterbreiten, wie die Mathematik für die soziologische Forschung zugänglich gemacht werden kann: (1) LIVINGSTONs "demonstrative Soziologie"; (2) MERZ und KNORR-CETINAs "E-mail Ethnography" und (3) meine eigene Video-Ethnografie.

In this article I argue that in contrast to a large number of sociological studies of laboratory practices in the natural sciences, there have been relatively few studies that have investigated professional mathematical practice. I discuss three different methodological attempts to "open up" advanced mathematics for sociological investigation: (1) LIVINGSTON's "demonstrative sociology"; (2) MERZ and KNORR-CETINA's "e-mail ethnography"; and (3) my own "video ethnography."

En este artículo sostengo que frente al alto número de estudios sociológicos sobre prácticas de laboratorio en las ciencias naturales, se han realizado relativamente pocos estudios que hayan investigado la práctica matemática profesional. Planteo tres diferentes modos de "abrir" las matemáticas avanzadas a la investigación sociológica: (1) la "sociología demostrativa" de LIVINGSTON; (2) la "etnografía por correo electrónico" de MERZ y KNORR-CETINA; y (3) mi propia "video-etnografía".
