Description

Building upon the incorporation of fieldnotes into anthropological research, this edited collection explores fieldnote practices from within education and the social sciences. Framed by social justice concerns about power in knowledge production, the collection will explore methodological questions about the production, use, sharing, and teaching of fieldnotes, with attention to the role of context and author positionality in shaping fieldnotes practices. Why do researchers take fieldnotes? What do their fieldnotes look like? What ethical concerns do different types of fieldnotes practices provoke? The book draws on case studies from numerous international contexts, including the US, Argentina, Canada, Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Kenya, Lebanon, Malawi, the Netherlands, South Africa, Turkey, and the UK.
