Abstract:

The Accidental Anthropologist is a memoir, or more accurately, a series of fragments. Jackson's experiences begin with his earnest portrayal of young adulthood in Wellington where he associates on the fringes with many of the literary figures of the early 60s, Bob Lowry, Fleur Adcock, James K. Baxter, R.A.K. Mason and the artist McCahon. Jackson finds himself homeless in London where he's drawn to help the poor and eventually finds his way to Cambridge where he stumbles upon anthropology. His subsequent ethnographic fieldwork takes him to the Congo, Sierra Leone, and outback Australia.
