This volume presents the latest explorations of the literary turn in ethnographic work by many of the leading people in the area. Centering on autoethnography, personal narrative, ethnographic performance, and the blending of social science and the arts, the articles collected here emphasize embodiment, experiential understanding, participatory ways of knowing, sensuous engagement, and intimate encounter. Drawing from disciplines as diverse as sociology, philosophy, performance studies, communication, family therapy, and English, the authors here demonstrate the many ways in which ethnography can be effectively conducted and expressed. The editors weave narrative and conversations surrounding the conference from which these pieces emerged into a reflexive volume which includes poetry, stories, theatre, and visual media as well as critical pieces. Accessible and jargon free, this book should excite scholars and students as to the expanding possibilities for ethnographic presentation.

About the Author:

Arthur P. Bochner and Carolyn Ellis are Professors of Communication, University of South Florida. They are the editors of AltaMira's series Ethnographic Alternatives.

Review:

illustrates the power and range of potential applications and uses of ethnographic research...of particular interest to communication scholars... (Mary Ann Danielson, Creighton University Communication Research Trends, Vol. 23, No. 1, 2004)

Ethnographically Speaking consists of a collection of papers presented at the 'Millennium Annual Stone Symposium' sponsored by the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction. . . . The book does indeed provide for the exposing underlying problems of research participants, which are shared by others in the larger society. . . . The book opens the doors of many closed closets in academia and is to be applauded for that. (Valerie Malhotra Bentz Forum: Qualitative Social Research)
