FieldWorking, Bonnie Stone Sunstein and Elizabeth Chiseri-Strater's acclaimed textbook, is an engaging guide to the fundamentals of ethnographic study, complete with practical help for research and writing. Emphasizing civic responsibility and community engagement, FieldWorking incorporates examples by professionals writers such as Mark Singer, Pico Iyer, Joan Didion, and Jamaica Kincaid, as well as student research projects on topics as diverse as a local truck stop, dinner clubs, blogging, and a horse sales barn, to help students identify and define their own subcultures and communities. Because students are connected to their research, FieldWorking's ethnographic approach makes projects fascinating and empowering for all students as they learn to observe, listen, interpret, analyze, and write about the people and artifacts around them.
This book is useful for teaching Freshman English, particularly in Study Abroad settings where I use it. It encourages the students to explore and discover new environments as subjects for their writings. In particular, it gives good models for how to integrate the words of their interviewees with their own narrations. This method of letting the people speak in their own words is the newest form of narrative, as witnessed by the 2015 Nobel prize in Literature for Svetlana Alexievich.....
I am finding this textbook very useful for teaching college writers ways of researching, thinking, and writing about subcultures here in New York City. It's a useful guide to conducting onsite observations, interviews, interacting with new environments and cultures different to one's own. It offers lots of readings to supply examples of strategies--and good writing by professionals and students in the authors' classes---that my students can use in their writing. And the authors' discussions, along with their selections of writing, often raise authentic issues, ones that students have a real stake in. I use large bits and pieces, create my own units from the book in order to design a course, and in class I use this book along with other essays, fiction, film, poetry, visual art, music . . .
Excellent book! The exercises are really helpful to get you thinking about your own research project. It's very reader-friendly and not full of esoteric academic language.
I needed this book for an advanced writing class and it was a gem. I really feel like it covered fieldworking--and writing about said fieldworking--thoroughly and clearly, without being boring. The readings were great, too. This book is a keeper for sure!
good deal
Great textbook for my Storied Anthropology class. Plain and straightforward, full of practical tips and examples. Enjoying this as a guide as we do a storied site this semester. The exercises are helpful as well.
I liked it there a lot to learn from it.
