Abstract:

"Students better understand ethnographic methods through experience rather than lecture. This theme of learning-by-doing permeates throughout Doing Cultural Anthropology. Each chapter in this outstanding collection covers the fundamentals of a different data-collection technique. In addition to providing an overview of a particular technique, each author describes his or her own research project utilizing that technique. Readers are then provided with a project at the end of each chapter, promoting hands-on exposure to what ethnographers actually do. The chapters are not written as scholarly treatises; instead they give readers just enough information to appreciate the techniques and to practice it for themselves. Readers of all levels and from any discipline that uses ethnography will benefit from the clear, accessible style."--Back cover.
