Constructing the Field
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In an increasingly globalized world how is the nature of ethnographic fieldwork changing? In this book anthropologists provide a thorough and critical appraisal of what fieldwork is, and should be. The contributors challenge: the percieved necessity for the total immersion of the anthropologist in the field the separation of professional and personal areas of activity the existence of 'the field' as an entity separate from everyday life. Fresh perspectives on these and other aspects of contemporary fieldwork are provided by personal accounts of anthropologists in the field in Canada, The Cayman Islands, Britain, Switzerland and Spain.
