Book cover
Fieldwork Identities in the Caribbean
Erin B. Taylor
Book excerpt:
"This book emerged from a simple question posed to me by a graduate student in anthropology. She asked me, 'But what exactly is it that you do all day in the field?'
Despite a plethora of methodology books addressing this very question, the minutiae of everyday life in the field remain a mystery to students...This book does not pretend to provide a recipe for fieldwork; rather it provides examples of how researchers negotiate complex social relations with the participants of their studies...[and] it gives students insights into the kinds of issues they may encounter in the field, provides established scholars with a point of comparison with their own experiences, and compels anthropology to move further away from the division between the west and the rest." (from the Preface)
