How can you do ethnographic field research in a safe way for you and the people you work with?
In this nuanced, candid book, researchers from across the globe discuss core challenges faced by ethnographers, reflecting on research from preparation to dissemination and how identity interacts with the realities of doing fieldwork.
Building on the work of the editors’ The New Ethnographer Project, which has been seeking to change the way ethnographic methods are approached and taught since 2018, the book:
- Promotes an inclusive approach that invites you to learn from the challenges faced by a diverse range of scholars.
- Addresses underexplored issues including emotional and physical safety in the face of ableism, homophobia and racism.
- Challenges assumptions of what it means to produce knowledge by conducting fieldwork.
Whether you’re an undergraduate student or an experienced researcher, this book will help you do fieldwork that is safer, healthier and more ethical.
