Product Overview

In its assessment of the current "state of play" of ethnographic practice in social anthropology this volume explores the challenges to contemporary ethnographic methods of changing social forms and changing understandings of "the field," including the implications of the remarkable impact social anthropology is having on neighboring disciplines such as history, sociology, cultural studies, human geography, and linguistics, and the potential "costs" of this success for the discipline. Contributors also discuss how ethnographic method is influenced by current institutional contexts and historical ?traditions? of ethnographic work across a range of different settings. Ethnography is featured here less a methodological "tool-box" or technique but rather as an invitation to the reader to reflect on its subject.
