Fieldnotes: The Makings Of Anthropology
After a long American Ethnological Society board of directors session on the first day of the American Anthropological Association meetings in Denver, I met Shirley Lindenbaum, editor of Ameri can Ethnologist and a fellow member of the board, in the hotel lobby. We were later joined by James Clifford, a historian of anthropology. By eleven o'clock in the evening we were all hungry and decided to eat in the hotel. We descended several flights to the one restaurant that was still open.
Fieldnotes: The Makings of Anthropology
A welcome addition to undergraduate and graduate courses on fieldwork methods. Highly recommended. With nearly three billion Internet users and more than four and a half billion mobile phone owners today, and with an ever-growing array of electronic devices and information sources, ethnographers confront a vastly different world from just decades ago, when fieldnotes produced by hand and typewriter were the professional norm. Reflecting on fieldwork experiences both off- and online, the contributors survey changes and continuities since the classic volume Fieldnotes: The Makings of Anthropology , edited by Roger Sanjek, was published in They also confront ethical issues in online fieldwork, the strictures of institutional review boards affecting contemporary research, new forms of digital data and mediated collaboration, shifting boundaries between home and field, and practical and moral aspects of fieldnote recording, curating, sharing, and archiving. In the United States, fieldwork populations include urban mothers of toddlers and young children, teen tech users, Bitcoin traders, World of Warcraft gamers, online texters and bloggers, and anthropologists themselves. With growing interest in both traditional and digital ethnographic methods, scholars and students in anthropology and sociology, as well as in computer and information sciences, linguistics, social work, communications, media studies, design, management, and policy fields, will find much of value in this engaging and accessibly written volume.
