Cultural Anthropology Notes Chapter 2: Researching Culture Definitions Only Fieldwork—research in the field, which is any place where people and culture are found Participant Observation—basic fieldwork method in cultural anthropology that involves living in a culture for a long time while gathering data Multisited Research—fieldwork conducted in more than one location in order to understand culture of dispersed members of the culture or relationships among different levels of culture Armchair Anthropology—research conducted by sitting in an office or at home reading research from books, reports, etc. about other cultures written by travelers, missionaries, and explorers. Verandah Anthropology—an anthropologist who sends for “natives” to sit with them under a verandah and discuss their culture and lifestyle with them. Kula—a trading network, liking many of the Trobraind Islanders, in which men have long-standing partnerships for the exchange of everyday goods, such as food, as well as highly valued necklaces and armlets Informed Consent—an aspect of fieldwork ethics requiring that the researcher inform the research participants of the intent, scope, and possible effects of the proposed study and seek their consent to be in the study Rapport—a trusting relationship between the researcher and the study population Culture Shock—persistent feelings of uneasiness, loneliness, and anxiety that often occur when a person has shifted from one culture to another. Reverse Culture Shock may occur after coming home from staying so long in another culture Deductive Approach—a research method that involves posing a research question or hypothesis, gathering data related to the question, and then assessing the findings in a relation to the original hypothesis Inductive Approach—a research approach that avoids hypothesis formation in advance of the research and instead takes its lead from the culture being studied Quantitative Data—numeric information Qualitative Data—non-numeric information Etic—an analytical framework used by outside analysis in studying culture Emic—insiders’ perceptions and categories, and their explorations for why they do what they do Interview—a research technique that involves gathering verbal data through questions or guided conversation between at least two people Questionnaire—a formal research instrument containing a pre-set series of questions that the anthropologist asks in a face-to-face setting, by mail, or by e-mail. Toponymy—the renaming of places Indigenous Knowledge—local understanding of the environment, climate, plants, animals, and making a living Ethnography—a detailed description of a living culture, based on personal observation and study Collaborative Research—an approach to learning about culture that involves anthropologists working with members of the study population as partners and participants than as “subjects”
