Fieldwork is a core component of geography degree courses. In this lively and engaging textbook, Richard Phillips and Jennifer Johns provide a practical guide to conducting fieldwork in human geography to help every student get the most out of their fieldwork. The book is divided into four sections. The first encourages students to critically engage with the reasons for doing fieldwork and what they can get out. The second explains methods and contexts and links the fieldwork with wider academic topics. The third section looks beyond the contents of research projects and field visits to address the wider experience of fieldwork: working in groups; understanding your ethical position; and opening your eyes, ears and minds to the wider possibilities of your trip. Throughout the book, the authors present first person descriptions of field experiences and predicaments, written by fieldtrip leaders and students from around the world including the UK, USA, Canada, Singapore and South Africa.
