FIELDNOTES THE MAKINGS OF ANTHROPOLOGY SANJEK PDF

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. As Lindenbaum and Clifford sat eating their dinner and I sat waiting for mine, Clifford brought up the subject of fieldnotes. He said that in all the recent discussion about writing ethnography and about ethnographies as writing, no one had addressed what anthropologists write before they write ethnographies—fieldnotes.

He said that in all the recent discussion about writing ethnography and about ethnographies as writing, no one had addressed what anthropologists write before they write ethnographies—fieldnotes.

This led our conversation to a chain of associations, comments, and ideas about fieldnotes and about why ethnographers have written so little on the subject. When I learned at the next day's aes board meeting that I was to chair the program committee for the aes Invited Sessions at the Washington aaa meetings, in , I immediately thought of doing a panel on fieldnotes.

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.
