What are the relationships between the self and fieldwork? How do personal, emotional and identity issues impact upon working in the field?

This book argues that ethnographers, and others involved in fieldwork, should be aware of how fieldwork research and ethnographic writing construct, reproduce and implicate selves, relationships and personal identities. All too often research methods texts remain relatively silent about the ways in which fieldwork affects us and we affect the field. The book attempts to synthesize accounts of the personal experience of ethnography. In doing so, the author makes sense of the process of fieldwork research as a set of practical, intellectual and emotional accomplishments. The book is thematically arranged, and illustrated with a wide range of empirical material.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Whether you are contemplating ethnographic research, have already done it or are primarily interested in it as a reader, this book should deepen your appreciation of one of the most challenging activities that any social scientist or management research can engage in' - Management Learning

`The chapter entitled "The sex(ual) field" is a good example of how challenging Coffey's work is. She considers how the sexual status of the researcher can make a difference to the research; what the implications are surrounding physical sexual activity occurring during fieldwork; as well as fieldwork conducted in explicitly erotic settings. By considering this most personal of arenas, Coffey highlights the existence and participation of the researcher as a whole in the ethnographic research process....The Ethnographic Self is a useful reminder of the ways in which real people are involved in social research' - British Educational Research Journal
