Qualitative Research Methods #09: Gender Issues in Ethnographyby Jennifer Kay Hackney
Synopses & Reviews
This Second Edition summarizes the state of the art of gender issues in fieldwork both in anthropology and sociology. Warren shows how the researcher's gender affects both the fieldwork relationships and the production of ethnography. The authors focus is more empirical than theoretical; using literature on gender and ethnography, together with their own experiences as women ethnographers, they focus on ways in which researchers represent these experiences through narrative.
Book News Annotation:
Warren and Hackney (both: sociology, University of Kansas) assess the current state of gendered ethnography. Their empirically-based study draws from the published literature and their own experiences as women ethnographers. Focusing on the ways gender is experienced in the field, they seek to understand the experiences of both researcher and respondent, as well as the narrative representations of these experiences. No index.
