Fieldwork, once regarded as an essential pillar of social anthropology, has come under attack, especially from the post-modern school. Hedigan argues that for many in the discipline, an anthropology without fieldwork would appear to be a hollow, meaningless experience, devoid of its central epistemological value. This book, drawing on the author’s fieldwork experience among Ojibwa people in Northern Ontario, explores post-modernism’s critique of fieldwork and fieldwork’s contribution to modern anthropology.
