Synopsis: The Shadow Side of Fieldwork draws attention to the typically hidden or unacknowledged aspects of ethnographic fieldwork encounters that nevertheless shape the resulting knowledge and texts. Addressing these invisible, elusive, unspoken or mysterious elements introduces a distinctive rigor and responsibility to ethnographic research.


  • Luminaries in anthropology dare to explore the 'unspeakable' and 'invisible' in the ethnographic encounter
  • Considers personal and professional challenges (ethical, epistemological, and political) faced by researchers who examine the subjectivities inherent in their ethnographic insights
  • Explores the value, and limitations, of addressing the personal in ethnographic research
  • Includes a critical discussion of the anthropologist’s self in the field
  • Introduces imaginative rigor to ethnographic research to heighten confidence in anthropological knowledge

Book Description: The Shadow Side of Fieldwork draws attention to that which is typically hidden or unacknowledged in ethnographic research, but that nevertheless shapes its knowledge and texts: the invisible, mysterious, unspoken or unspeakable, or imperceptable to the ethnographer, interlocutor or reader. These are the areas where life and research overlap, private experiences and formal ethnography blur and where the field may lose its boundedness. The focus of this volume thus goes beyond the ethnographer to the research encounter and the various shadows confronted there. Containing essays by such luminaries in the field of anthropology as Nancy Scheper-Hughes and Vincent Crapanzano, this book dares to get closer to the unspeakable and invisible in ethnographic work, while also considering various personal and professional challenges (ethical, epistemological and political) faced by researchers who question the source, or paradoxical nature, of their ethnographic insights.
