What it is instead, however, is less clear. That it might be a kind of writing, putting things to paper, has now and then occurred to those engaged in producing it, consuming it, or both. But The illusion that ethnography is a matter of sorting strange and irregular facts into familiar and antorpologo categories–this is magic, that is technology–has long auror been exploded.
But the examination of it as such has been impeded by several considerations, none of them very reasonable.
One of these, especially weighty among the producers, has been simply that it is an unanthropological sort of thing to do. What a proper ethnographer ought properly to be doing is going out to places, coming back with information about how people live there, and making that information available to the professional community in practical form, not lounging about in libraries reflecting on literary questions.
Cifford concern, which in practice usually means any concern at all, with how ethnographic texts are constructed seems like an unhealthy self-absorption–time wasting at best, hypochondriacal at worst. The advantage of shifting at least part of our attention from the fascinations of field work, which have held us so long in thrall, to those of writing is not only that this difficulty will become more clearly understood, but also that we shall learn to read with a more percipient eye.

Editions of Works and Lives: The Anthropologist as Author by Clifford Geertz
I was worried that since I haven’t read most of the source material, that I’d be a bit in the dark, but Geertz does an excellent job of making the writings in question and even the work of Foucault and Barthes that he uses to look at them accessible. As an added bonus, for me at least, this appears to be the unmentioned source text for an ethnographic methods course I took a few years back.
Whereas that was fairly ham-fisted and mo An amazing mix of literary criticism and ethnological overview. In that course a few years back, some of those same grad gerfz spent lots of hot air bashing Evans Prichard as antropo,ogo ethnocentrist, a colonialist, a white man, an englishman, and dare I say it? Geertz, who for modern anthropologists is probably much cljfford important than Evans Prichard, does not glorify the man, but he does add “let him who gerttz free of his century’s imaginings cast the first stone.
It’s probably the only really constructive criticism of ethnography I’ve enountered.
Geertz is my favorite anthropologist and in this text talks about how anthropologists write–admittedly, he writes more aesthetically than most, clifrord has been accused of being non-objective, but no anthropologist can report on a culture without the bias of his vlifford. He doesn’t exaggerate, or fabricate, but relays things as he sees them–as beautiful, fascinating, sensual, etc.
He’s an artist really. May 27, Roby rated it it was amazing. An important resource for anthropologists.
