About this product
- DescriptionCollaboration between ethgraphers and subjects has long been a product of the close, intimate relationships that define ethgraphic research. But increasingly collaboration is longer viewed as merely a consequence of fieldwork; instead collaboration w preconditions and shapes research design as well as its dissemination. As a result, ethgraphic subjects are shifting from being informants to being consultants. The emergence of collaborative ethgraphy highlights this relationship between consultant and ethgrapher, moving it to center stage as a calculated part t only of fieldwork but also of the writing process itself. The Chicago Guide to Collaborative Ethgraphy presents a historical, theoretical, and practice-oriented road map for this shift from incidental collaboration to a more conscious and explicit collaborative strategy. Luke Eric Lassiter charts the history of collaborative ethgraphy from its earliest implementation to its contemporary emergence in fields such as feminism, humanistic anthropology, and critical ethgraphy. On this historical and theoretical base, Lassiter outlines concrete steps for achieving a more deliberate and overt collaborative practice throughout the processes of fieldwork and writing. As a participatory action situated in the ethical commitments between ethgraphers and consultants and focused on the co-construction of texts, collaborative ethgraphy, argues Lassiter, is among the most powerful ways to press ethgraphic fieldwork and writing into the service of an applied and public scholarship. A comprehensive and highly accessible handbook for ethgraphers of all stripes, The Chicago Guide to Collaborative Ethgraphy will become a fixture in the development of a critical practice of anthropology, invaluable to undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty alike.
