Anthropology's distinctive method, termed ethnography, is grounded in long term participation in the cultural contexts that anthropologists describe and analyse. This unit explores the disciplined but open nature of anthropological research and the radically contextual modes of interpretation that are embedded in the lives of its subjects. Issues include: the history of the method; the diverse situations in which anthropologists practice; the way that fieldwork experience shapes the method. Students will devise and report on their own project. -- Course Website
