Lecture: Fieldwork and Ethics September 7, 2016 Professor: Dr. Weaver Ethnography and emerging themes: - Focus on gender - New media ethnography - Engaged/collaborative ethnography - “Native” ethnography Crisis of Representation - Emic and etic perspectives Ethics in Fieldwork - Reverse culture shock is when someone travels abroad for an extended period of time and then returns to their “home culture”, only to have culture shock Recording Data - Video Camera - Audio Recorder - Notes Coding Data - Transcribe Data (Analyze text, speech, body language, etc.) The focus of anthropologists on gender began around 1970 Engaged/Collaborative Ethnography: Working IN a community (as part of that community) 1980: Crisis of Representation - Questions of subjectivity and objectivity - Realization that no interpretive account can ever completely capture lived experience What do we do? 1. Own up to the fact we can’t represent everyone objectively ——> Postmodernism 2. Stop trying to represent others ——> Native Ethnography 3. Try to incorporate more sources of data to help account for our own inherent blind spot ——> Mixed Methods One Anthropologist’s Ethical Stance: - Empowering people - Involving community - Making research available to the community - Doing research that benefits the community Emic Perspective: Insider’s perspective Ethic Perspective: Outsider’s perspective AAA Code of Ethics 1. Do no harm; primary responsibility is to the persons you are studying 2. Obtain consent from informants 3. Be honest about research and its motivations 4. Make results accessible Institutional Review Board (IRB) - Research information must be submitted to and approved by the board - Created after Tuskegee Case (Alabama, 1930s)
