Reviewer Meets Reviewed: Anthropological Practice: Fieldwork and the Ethnographic Method by RoyalAnthropologicalInst published on 2019-03-01T14:04:17Z REVIEWER MEETS REVIEWED Anthropological Practice: Fieldwork and the Ethnographic Method Thursday 21 February 2019 The British Museum’s Anthropology Library and Research Centre, in conjunction with the Royal Anthropological Institute, is pleased to present ‘Reviewer meets Reviewed’, a discussion between Prof Judith Okely, author of Anthropological Practice: Fieldwork and the Ethnographic Method , and Dr Anselma Gallinat, who reviewed the book for the Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute. Anthropologists are increasingly pressurised to formulate field methods for teaching. Unlike many hypothesis-driven ethnographic texts, this book is designed with the specific needs of the anthropology student and field researcher in mind, with particular emphasis on the core anthropological method: long term participant observation. Anthropological Practice explores fieldwork experiences unique to anthropology, and provides the context by which to explain and develop practice-based and open-ended methodology. It draws on dialogues with over twenty established and younger anthropologists, whose fieldwork spans the late 1960s to the present day, taking place in locations as diverse as Europe, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Africa, Iran, Afghanistan, North and South America.
