About this product
- DescriptionIn Contours of Culture the authors discuss the uses of various ethgraphic methods in the study of culture, drawing on their field research with an opera company, Welsh artists, and classes on the popular Brazilian martial art capoeira. In their practical research and in the research of other scolars, they encounter complex problems and themes that often require new ways of organizing and conceiving cultural material, and even new ways of giving expression to phemena that are only partially understood. This book is t only about the inherent complexities involved in ethgraphy; it is also about the kinds of opportunities available to researchers immersed in this complexity and how they might grasp cultural settings in their entirety.
