What People are Saying About This
A bold new approach to, and reimagining of, ethnography and ethnographic practice. By considering how creativity and the imagination infuse social relationships, the book explores new ways of working alongside people as subjects of co-creative research rather than as objects of study. A readable and fascinating collection that speaks across disciplines.
This book offers the human sciences a breath of fresh air, providing examples of creative approaches to twenty-first-century anthropological method and representation. More importantly, the authors in this collection underscore the importance of the imagination in doing anthropology. Such a tack encourages practitioners to act imaginatively and to take representational risks. Following this sage advice, future scholars might reap the intellectual and existential rewards of opening themselves to the world.
A Different Kind of Ethnography charts a creative path for the ever-shifting discipline of anthropology, which is increasingly forging space for sensory, performative, and experimental forms and technologies. This volume is a tremendous resource for the classroom and for a new generation of imaginative ethnographers.
