Summary
  • "Ethnographic Fieldwork: An Anthology" provides readers with a good sense of the breadth, variation, and complexity of the fieldwork enterprise. Selections are therefore not restricted to discussions of data gathering proper, but include engaging work ranging from issues of professional identity and fieldwork relations to ethnographic writing. After reading Ethnographic Fieldwork, students will have a good sense of classic and contemporary reflections on fieldwork, the tensions between self and other, the relationships between anthropologists and informants, conflicts and ethical challenges, various types of ethnographic research, and different styles of writing about fieldwork.
