Serendipity in anthropological research : the nomadic turn by Haim Hazan( )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Challenging the idea that fieldwork is the only way to gather data, and that standard methods are the sole route to fruitful analysis, 'Serendipity in anthropological research' explores the role of fortune and happenstance in anthropology. It conceives of anthropological research as a lifelong nomadic journey of discovery in which the world yields an infinite number of unexplored issues and innumerable ways of studying them, each study producing its own questions and demanding its own methodologies. Drawing together the latest research from a team of senior scholars from around the world to reflect on the experience of research, 'Serendipity in anthropological research' presents rich new case studies from Europe and the Middle East to examine both new and old questions in novel and enriching ways. An engaging examination of methodology and anthropological fieldwork, this book will appeal to all those concerned with writing ethnography
Patrons of women : literacy projects and gender development in rural Nepal by Esther Hertzog( )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Assuming that women's empowerment would accelerate the pace of social change in rural Nepal, the World Bank urged the Nepali government to undertake a "Gender Activities Project" within an ongoing long-term water-engineering scheme.

Immigrants and bureaucrats : Ethiopians in an Israeli absorption center by Esther Hertzog( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As Israel is primarily a country of immigrants, the state has taken on the responsibility of the settlement and integration of each new group, viewing its role as both benevolent and indispensable to the welfare of migrants. Although these efforts may work to some extent, the author makes clear in this study of Ethiopian immigrants that the overwhelming effect is exactly the opposite: the absorption centers, which are central to Israeli immigration policy, reduce the migrants to the helpless charges of officials who seem more concerned with expanding and perpetuating their respective organizations, and securing their own positions within them. Thus, rather than furthering integration, these centers create dependence on state control and encourage social segregation between the varying immigrant groups - whose lives and social structures are constantly interfered with and who are cast as weak, defenseless, and needy." "This unusual ethnography is a rich example of state politics, bureaucratic conflicts, power-dependence relationships, and subjection. Filled with descriptions of the various encounters and discussions in offices and caravans it allows the reader to gain a real sense of the migrant situation taking place in Israel, the personalities of the officials, and their bureaucratic license."--Jacket
