Product description


"A marvelous tool for teaching ethnography! This excellent collection combines classic statements with more contemporary pieces to provide both practical advice and sophisticated reflection on the dilemmas of fieldwork and its risks both for fieldworkers and for field subjects." Tanya Luhrmann, Max Palevsky Professor, University of Chicago

Ethnographic Fieldwork is an outstanding volume that will surely become a virtual bible for students and teachers of anthropology everywhere. Rarely have I seen an edited volume so intelligently and thoughtfully put together. The selections are excellent, the Introduction is valuable, and the section introductions are small gems of insight and synthesis. And finally, it is more than readable – it is compelling. I actually couldn’t put it down.” Sherry B. Ortner, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology, University of California, Los Angeles

Book Description

Ethnographic Fieldwork: An Anthropological Reader aims to provide 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.
