Summary

As "visiting strangers," anthropologists find themselves immersed in the essential mysteries of the ethnographic experience: How can an academic drop into a small Nigerian village or a Himalayan hillside and find friendship as well as information? How can people cross language and cultural barriers? Can even the best-intentioned anthropologist bridge the gap between humanistic science and true friendship? These questions outline a multifaceted quandary, but the beauty of ethnography is that it proves that in the field, friendships do form and deepen. Each of the authors in this captivating collection is a humanist anthropologist--skilled observers and reporters of experiences. They transcend quantitative safety and reach far into the human realm, discovering that those studied can enter an ethnographer's life as a mentor, friend, or collaborator. Through the art of personal narrative, this volume demonstrates that differing cultures can link to change fieldwork into friendship. In this Second Edition, readers will explore life as it is felt in several continents through music, poetry, reflection, and the spirited retellings of conversations. With the addition of photographs and discussion questions, the friends and collaborators described come alive, along with all of the profound and provocative mysteries about them.
