Theorizing Fieldwork in the Humanities: Methods, Reflections, and Approaches to the Global South By Shalini Puri, Debra A. Castillo
English | PDF | 2016 | 264 Pages | ISBN : 1137603313 | 2.58 MB
This volume, the first of its kind, launches a conversation amongst humanities scholars doing fieldwork on the global south. It both offers indispensable tools and demonstrates the value of such work inside and outside of the academy.
The contributors reflect upon their experiences of fieldwork, the methods they improvised, their dilemmas and insights, and the ways in which fieldwork shifted their frames of analysis. They explore how to make fieldwork legible to their disciplines and how fieldwork might extend the work of the humanities. The volume is for both those who are already deeply immersed in fieldwork in the humanities and those who are seeking ways to undertake it.
