Being Ethnographic: A Guide to the Theory and Practice of Ethnography
by Raymond Madden
2010, Sage Publications
Full of practical ‘how to’ tips for applying theoretical methods – ‘doing ethnography’ – this book also provides anecdotal evidence and advice for new and experienced researchers on how to engage with their own participation in the field – ‘being ethnographic’.
Being Ethnographic clearly sets out the important definitions, methods and applications of field research while reinforcing the infinite variability of the human subject and addressing the challenges presented by ethnographers’ own passions, intellectual interests, biases and ideologies.
