Reflexive ethnography : a guide to researching selves and others by Charlotte Aull Davies( Book )
47 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 667 libraries worldwide
Ethnographic research is fundamental to the discipline of anthropology. However, contemporary debate on themes such as modernism/postmodernism, subjectivity/objectivity and self/other put the value of fieldwork into question. Reflexive Ethnography provides a practical and comprehensive guide to ethnographic research methods which fully engages with these significant issues. It tackles relevant research questions, including chapters on selection of topics and methods, data collection, analysis, and ethics and politics. Charlotte Aull Davies stresses that the researcher's own subjectivity need not have a negative effect on their methodology. Reflexive ethnography can create a unique form of material which is not accessible through native texts, but which is neither simply the product of the individual anthropologist's psyche. Instead it generates knowledge which in essence reflects social reality
Welsh nationalism in the twentieth century : the ethnic option and the modern state by Charlotte Aull Davies( Book )
5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 239 libraries worldwide
Families in transition : social change, family formation, and kin relationships by Nickie Charles( Book )
16 editions published in 2008 in English and French and held by 198 libraries worldwide
This book addresses the complexity of family change. It draws on evidence from two linked studies, one carried out in the 1960s and the other in the early years of the 21st century, to analyse the specific ways in which family lives have changed and how they have been affected by the major structural and cultural changes of the second half of the twentieth century. The book shows that, while there has undeniably been change, there is a surprising degree of continuity in family practices. It casts doubt on claims that families have been subject to a process of dramatic change and provides an alternative account which is based on careful analysis of empirical data
Welsh communities : new ethnographic perspectives ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 161 libraries worldwide
"Welsh Communities is a critical examination of the diverse Welsh experiences on community: rural and urban; traditional and alternative; inward and outward migrations. The essays in the volume - the first collection of ethnographic writing on Wales for a number of decades - advocate a contemporary theoretical approach to the study of communities. Each essay is based on original ethnographic research, using methods that involve a long-term and comparatively intimate relationship between researchers and their research subjects and locales." "The contributors analyse the nature of community and explore how different groups symbolically construct and experience 'community' on a day-to-day basis. The groups and topics considered include a former mining village in south Wales; traditional healing in mid-Wales; farming; incomers and alternative lifestyles in west Wales; two contrasting neighbourhoods in Swansea; and the London Welsh community. In the course of these studies, various questions are also raised concerning how or whether the contributors as 'native ethnographers' belong to those communities they are studying. Welsh Communities represents a major original contribution to the development of anthropological studies of Welsh society and culture."--BOOK JACKET
