Helping students apply their anthropological toolkit to the real world
Ethnographic fieldwork is one of the most fundamental tools for anthropological study. The step-by-step exercises in Ken Guest's Cultural Anthropology Fieldwork Journal encourage students to apply the concepts they are learning in class and observe, question, and generate their own data about the places, relationships, and networks that they may take for granted in everyday life: from friendships, family dynamics, and consumption habits to classrooms, places of worship, TV screens, and their own homes.
