An island republic in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Its capital is Nicosia. It was colonized by the Phoenicians and ancient Greeks and ruled successively by the Assyrian, Persian, Ptolemaic, Roman, and Byzantine Empires. It was under various countries from the 12th to the 20th century but became independent in 1960. The name comes from the Greek Kupros, probably representing the Sumerian kabar or gabar, copper, famous in historic times for its copper mines. The cypress tree is also named after the island.

Explicit guidelines for qualitative research: a step in the right direction, a defence of the 'soft' option, or a form of sociological imperialism? (1/338)

Within the context of health service research, qualitative research has sometimes been seen as a 'soft' approach, lacking scientific rigour. In order to promote the legitimacy of using qualitative methodology in this field, numerous social scientists have produced checklists, guidelines or manuals for researchers to follow when conducting and writing up qualitative work. However, those working in the health service should be aware that social scientists are not all in agreement about the way in which qualitative work should be conducted, and they should not be discouraged from conducting qualitative research simply because they do not possess certain technical skills or extensive training in sociology, anthropology or psychology. The proliferation of guidelines and checklists may be off-putting to people who want to undertake this sort of research, and they may also make it even more difficult for researchers to publish work in medical journals. Consequently, the very people who may be in a position to change medical practice may never read the results of important qualitative research.  (+info)

Computer analysis of qualitative data: the use of ethnograph. (2/338)

Ethnograph, a code and retrieve software program for computer analysis of qualitative data, was utilized to assist in analyzing the content of in-depth interviews and focus group data. This program requires basic computer hardware and is fairly easy to use. The main advantage of the program is easy access to data dealing with a particular issue and easy retrieval of text for analysis and illustration. However, to get the maximum benefit from this program, documents need to be structured In the format suitable for the software. Among the difficulties encountered were the absence of on-line documents dummy coding, lack of options in printing facility and the tendency for the program to hang whenever there was a printing error.  (+info)

Rapid ethnographic assessment of breastfeeding practices in periurban Mexico City. (3/338)

Before carrying out a breastfeeding promotion programme in a periurban area of Mexico City, we conducted a rapid ethnographic study to determine the factors associated with absence of exclusive breastfeeding. The responses to pilot interviews were used to develop a standardized questionnaire regarding reasons for infant feeding choice, sources of advice, and barriers to breastfeeding. We interviewed a random sample of 150 mothers with a child < 5 years of age; 136 (91%) of them had initiated breastfeeding; but only 2% exclusively breastfed up to 4 months. The mothers consistently stated that the child's nutrition, health, growth, and hygiene were the main reasons for the type of feeding selected; cost, comfort, and the husband's opinion were less important. Physicians were ranked as the most important source of advice. Reduction or cessation of breastfeeding occurred on the doctor's advice (68%); or when the mothers encountered local folk illnesses such as "coraje" (52%) or "susto" (54%), which are associated with anger or fright; or had "not enough milk" (62%) or "bad milk" (56%); or because of illness of the mother (56%) or child (43%). During childhood illnesses and conditions, breastfeeding was reduced and the use of supplementary foods was increased. This study emphasizes the importance of cultural values in infant feeding choices, defines specific barriers to breastfeeding, and provides a basis for interventions to promote exclusive breastfeeding in the study population.  (+info)

Fish and mammals in the economy of an ancient Peruvian kingdom. (4/338)

Fish and mammal bones from the coastal site of Cerro Azul, Peru shed light on economic specialization just before the Inca conquest of A. D. 1470. The site devoted itself to procuring anchovies and sardines in quantity for shipment to agricultural communities. These small fish were dried, stored, and eventually transported inland via caravans of pack llamas. Cerro Azul itself did not raise llamas but obtained charqui (or dried meat) as well as occasional whole adult animals from the caravans. Guinea pigs were locally raised. Some 20 species of larger fish were caught by using nets; the more prestigious varieties of these show up mainly in residential compounds occupied by elite families.  (+info)

Building momentum: an ethnographic study of inner-city redevelopment. (5/338)

OBJECTIVES: One factor contributing to the decay of inner-city areas, and to consequent excess mortality, is the massive loss of housing. This report studied the effects of a redevelopment project on social functioning in an inner-city community. METHODS: This ethnographic study included the following elements: a longitudinal study of 10 families living in renovated housing, repeated observations and photographing of the street scene, focus groups, and informal interviews with area residents. The project was located in the Bradhurst section of Harlem in New York City and was focused on a redevelopment effort sponsored by local congregations. RESULTS: Those who were able to move into newly renovated housing found that their living conditions were greatly improved. Neighborhood revitalization lagged behind the rehabilitation of individual apartment houses. This uneven redevelopment was a visual and sensory reminder of "what had been." Residents missed the warmth and social support that existed in Harlem before its decline. CONCLUSIONS: Rebuilding damaged housing contributes greatly to the well-being of inner-city residents. The current pace and scope of rebuilding are insufficient to restore lost vitality.  (+info)

Natural experimental models: the global search for biomedical paradigms among traditional, modernizing, and modern populations. (6/338)

During the past four decades, biomedical scientists have slowly begun to recognize the unique opportunities for studying biomedical processes, disease etiology, and mechanisms of pathogenesis in populations with unusual genetic structures, physiological characteristics, focal endemic disease, or special circumstances. Such populations greatly extend our research capabilities and provide a natural laboratory for studying relationships among biobehavioral, genetic, and ecological processes that are involved in the development of disease. The models presented illustrate three different types of natural experiments: those occurring in traditionally living, modernizing, and modern populations. The examples are drawn from current research that involves population mechanisms of adaptation among East African Turkana pastoralists; a search for etiology and mechanisms of pathogenesis of an emerging disease among the Yakut people of Siberia; and psychosocial stress, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease in women working outside the home in New York City and among subpopulations in Hawaii. The models in general, and the examples in specific, represent natural laboratories in which relatively small intrapopulation differences and large interpopulation differences can be used to evaluate health and disease outcomes.  (+info)

Household poisoning exposure among children of Mexican-born mothers: an ethnographic study. (7/338)

OBJECTIVE: To explore reasons for high rates of unintentional poisoning among Latino children under 5 years old. DESIGN: Ethnographic interviews were carried out using a sample of mothers identified via door-to-door canvassing in an area with documented high injury rates among Latino children. Interviews included many open-ended and follow-up questions to elicit a detailed family history and emphasized observation of conditions and behaviors in the homes. SETTING: Low-income neighborhoods of Southern California. SUBJECTS: Fifty mothers born in Mexico with children under 5 years old. RESULTS: Children were exposed to potential poisoning agents in more than 80% of homes. Contributory factors related to culture included favorable attitudes toward iron as a healthful substance; extensive use of products that lack child-resistant packaging, such as rubbing alcohol and medicines from Mexico; high prevalence of shared housing; limited familiarity with toxic household chemicals not widely used in Mexico; and inability to read warning labels in English. CONCLUSION: Current Poison Control Center outreach efforts should be expanded. Clinicians are uniquely positioned to advise parents about the safe use and storage of toxic substances, including widely used products lacking child-resistant packaging. Medicines should be labeled in Spanish for those who do not know English.  (+info)

Ethnographic interviews to elicit patients' reactions to an intelligent interactive telephone health behavior advisor system. (8/338)

Information technology is being used to collect data directly from patients and to provide educational information to them. Concern over patient reactions to this use of information technology is especially important in light of the debate over whether computers dehumanize patients. This study reports reactions that patient users expressed in ethnographic interviews about using a computer-based telecommunications system. The interviews were conducted as part of a larger evaluation of Telephone-Linked Care (TLC)-HealthCall, an intelligent interactive telephone advisor, that advised individuals about how to improve their health through changes in diet or exercise. Interview findings suggest that people formed personal relationships with the TLC system. These relationships ranged from feeling guilty about their diet or exercise behavior to feeling love for the voice. The findings raise system design and user interface issues as well as research and ethical questions.  (+info)

Development of a culture of evidence based medicine depends on a body of research that draws from both qualitative and quantitative approaches.1 Recent BMJ articles have usefully questioned a stark polarity between qualitative and quantitative research and helped to demystify qualitative approaches. 2 3 4 There has been little mention of ethnography, however, and little argument for its use in health research.. I have examined some of these omissions, giving a broad indication of the nature of ethnography and arguing for its greater use within health care. I have given examples of ethnographic studies to suggest some of the issues that ethnography can help to explore, together with a brief outline of limitations of the approach.. ...

Ethnographic research is useful in recognizing ethnographic resources. Ethnographic resources are defined by the National Park Service as …a site, structure, object, landscape or natural resource assigned traditional legendary, religious, subsistence, or other significance in the cultural system of a group traditionally associated with it (DO-28: Appendix A, 181). Through ethnographic research the meaning of these resources with respect to community members can be interpreted. With the aid of communities traditionally associated or connected with the resources within and surrounding parks, the importance of the preservation of these resources can be communicated to visitors and employees of the National Parks. Communication established between the community, visitors and park employees help to better ensure the management of ethnographic resources. To learn more about the preservation of ethnographic resources, see El Santuario de Chimayo-Ethnographic Resource. ...

Ethnography, the study of culture, has its origins in anthropology, wherein the researcher observes, from an embedded position, over months or even years.
The authors experience in developing a manual based on ethnographic methods for collecting, analyzing and using information about the cultural context of diarrhea is presented. The goal of the process outlined in the manual is to recommend programmatic strategies and educational messages that are likely to be effective in achieving the adoption of appropriate diarrhea case management behaviors by mothers. The implications of manuals of this type for the role of anthropologists, and for social science capacity building in developing country programs are discussed. While recognizing that this approach risks limiting the anthropologists role to a technical one, the authors suggest that appropriate application of program specific manuals can encourage anthropological input into formulating program policies and strategies.. ...
This hospital ethnography focused on the relationship between culture and emergency physician habitus. The habitus of these physicians was defined as those routine, patterned forms of behaviors and practices performed by the physicians while in the emergency department and while interacting with the patient during the physician-patient interaction. Pierre Bourdieus practice theory was used to address how culture was related to the habitus of the emergency physician. The researcher found that culture was not only related to the habitus of these physicians, but it reproduced, and at times created, aspects of the habitus through the practices performed while in the emergency department and while interacting with patients.

Social & Behavioral Sciences Gateway, Room 3323 A one day conference. As posed by Tobias Rees, what actual forms does fieldwork assume when researchers, inspired by classic traditions of ethnography, are yet no longer interested primarily in ethnoi, territorially imagined societies and their cultures, but in events, emergent forms of life, assemblages? What becomes of fieldwork as method when it is conceived as the study of particular subjects and groups as cultures but then evolves in inquiries that escape the classic conceptions of doing ethnography, and are left with formulations of questions to which ethnography does not provide answers?

Learning, knowledge, research, insight: welcome to the world of UBC Library, the second-largest academic research library in Canada.
Background: This article explores how children use fantasy, play, and coping (imaginal coping) in order to handle chronic illness. Imaginal coping, as a theoretical construct, is defined as the use of imagination to deal with the hardships of illness. The overarching aim has been to investigate the various ways in which categories of staff members (doctors, nurses, play therapists, and hospital clowns) and parents support children in their coping. Focus has thus been on collaborative or interactive aspects of playful coping.. Method: A large proportion of the data collected consists of 93 h of video-recorded interactions between children, parents and staff. The collection of data involved fieldwork carried out with the use of a video ethnographic method, making it possible thereby to analyse and work with data in greater detail. For more than one year, five children with leukaemia were followed as each made their regular visits to a childrens cancer clinic in a childrens hospital in ...
Using the meta-ethnographic approach demands consideration of the suitability of the method and the rationale for using it. We believe it is important for the review question to drive the synthesis method and that meta-ethnography is probably best-suited to generating models or higher order theories of behaviour or experiences. The most important step in the process is formulating a focused question that will set the boundaries for the scope and depth of the synthesis.. We found having a multidisciplinary team useful, particularly in developing the focus for the synthesis, interpreting the steps of meta-ethnography, and in translating and interpreting meaning in the results of the synthesis. The members of the team had both clinical and social science backgrounds, which brought different perspectives to the review, ensured rigour and transparency in methods and helped the results of the review to be more relevant to planners developing treatment policies. One of the reviewers was an author of ...

We approached four practices in deprived parts of the north west of England to participate in our study. Two agreed to take part: one had a registered list of 12 000 patients and the other 8000 patients. Both had longstanding local reputations for providing high quality care and achieved high scores in the first year of the quality incentive scheme. We had no prior hypotheses that might inform a sampling strategy and since gaining access was the most important criterion these practices were chosen because they agreed to grant us access.. The research was aimed at exploring individual and group attitudes and patterns of behaviour. We therefore used observation of staff within their milieu, together with interviews and some analysis of documentation (for example, clinical incident reports, letters of complaint, job descriptions). We observed the clinics, general practitioner and nurse consultations, working patterns in the office and reception area, and practice meetings. We also carried out ...

This is how theory and ethnography merge analytically. Tsing and Uma Adang created a new event (space) for themselves from these bits and pieces, and this space made them see things, themselves and each other, quite differently. It was a new position. Tsing gives us ethnography in vignettes. Fragmentation, even of the Representing the anthropologists predicament 21 ories, becomes an important part of her theoretical perspective: rather than succumb to the goal of grand theory building by pursuing the coherence of a single approach, her theoretical fragmentation mimics the fragmentation of peoples experiences and their response to their marginality. When she explains the Meratus it is on the basis of her observation of their actions, not as a result of any special empathy. Yet a question remains. Since Tsing does not wish to overhomogenise, we cannot assume that Uma Adang, Induan Hilling and the other eccentrics she brings to us are representative of the Meratus. If this is so, we cannot know ...
Based upon two years of fieldwork in a mental health service for migrants in Lisbon, this article underlines how the psychiatric interpretation of the emotional experience of displacement, homelessness and (non) belonging in migrants can be influenced by colonial legacies. These legacies - incorporated, despite the best of intentions, as a constitutive element of diagnosis and treatment into the therapeutic practices of psychiatric counselling - pathologize experiences and behaviours of marginalized people of non-Western origins, reproducing discriminative attitudes and institutional racism. You came to me, Hippocrates, to give me the hellebore, giving credit to foolish men by whom my job is considered madness. I was writing about the harmony of the cosmos, the description of the pole and about the stars […] If you, convinced that I was insane, had made me drink this medicine, my wisdom would have become madness and your art would have been blamed as responsible of creating folly [Letter of Democritus
This thesis explores how newly arrived students experience conditions for learning and inclusion in their lived transitions within the Swedish school system. The thesis deploys an ethnographic approach combining interviews with participant observation. The data comprise interviews with 22 students at three points in time and three cycles of participant observation over the course of 15 months (in three municipalities of different sizes).. Deploying the concept of post-migration ecology, Study I maps the structural conditions that the educational landscape offers newly arrived students after migration to Sweden. The findings point to the emergence of a parallel school system through which the newly arrived students individual needs risk being overlooked. Study II uses a sociocultural perspective to compare the pedagogical and social resources offered in introductory and regular classes, concluding that introductory classes are characterised by weak challenges and strong support, whereas the ...
Changing practice in a hospital setting can be difficult - fraught with a list of barriers. A new research methodology, PRECESS, developed by a team of researchers from the US Healthy Children Project, Inc., and piloted by Healthy Children Project, Inc. (USA), Karolinska Intitutet (Sweden), Karolinska Hospital (Sweden), and the Egyptian Lactation Consultant Association (Egypt), uses ethnographic methods combined with hands-on expertise to drive lasting change. PRECESS stands for Practice, Reflection, Education and training, Combined with Ethnography for Sustainable Success. The PRECESS methodology expects sustainable change in a short period of time, only five days. The PRECESS methodology provides an opportunity for clinicians who are experts in the new technique to work in a practical manner side-by-side with the staff of the changing hospital for a limited amount of time. The hospital staff at the changing hospital then have the responsibility to continue the new process. During the time ...
The purpose of the study is to contribute to our understanding of innovation processes. The overarching research question has been: How do innovation processes evolve over time, and, in particular, how are knowledge and technology developed and commercialised? Through an ethnographic case study of innovation in between the biomarine and agricultural industries, I have traced and observed an innovation process from idea to commercialisation. Thus, the rich descriptions of this complex phenomenon are a central contribution from this study. Starting out with the development of a couple of novel technologies for processing fish, and establishing a collaboration between Tine (dairy/agriculture cooperative) and Bremnes Seashore (fish farm), the process ended up with what is now well known in Norwegian supermarkets and restaurants as Salma. This innovation process was related to industrial change within both the aqua- and agriculture industries, stimulated by the research policy on blue-green ...

My book The Social Life of DNA (@sociallifeofdna) is coming out next year with Beacon Press. The social life of DNA is both a methodological phrase and also an analytical or theoretical claim. The methodological use, you wont be surprised to hear, comes from Arjun Appadurai and his edited collection The Social Life of Things, which was about material culture - much more material than the genetics ancestry testing that I follow in my work. Appadurais mandate is that scholars can understand social meaning, in part, by following things around. That important insight was from the late 1980s. And, ...
Of these tribes, the Eldest Chief in the Thunder tribe is the most powerful. While the nation resided on the borders of the bay, they had but one village, which extended from the Banks to the river rouge, a distance of nine miles; and these indians assert that the remains of their villages are still visible. The chief of the Thunder tribe exercised an immediate and complete control over that village and his government was so strict that a single family could not leave the village for a hunting excursion without his permission. (90) At this day the Thunder is considered the superior of the tribes who have received their names from birds, and the Bear & Wolf have the greatest power in the other tribes. The latter are consulted on all points relating to their lands or civil negotiations with other tribes, and if these three persons should oppose the passage of any resolution in council, all others would submit without a murmur. War &c.. When any of the chiefs feel disposed to make war upon their ...
The scenarios suggest varied outcomes depending on land use choices made by households and the land use rules adopted at community level. It is important to note that the simulations produce aggregate results, while actual results for different households would vary depending on many factors. As we have seen above, there is considerable stratification in this population and that would influence the effects of land use changes. In general, however, if the pastoral economy is privileged, then access to grazing land will be retained - for example by adopting the reciprocal access to grazing land rule. In this case, grazing orbits will not be reduced and livestock numbers will not decline (at least, not for this reason). In this scenario, however, land devoted to crop production will face limits since there is a trade-off between retaining pasture and growing crops - both cannot be done simultaneously on the same piece of land. Thus, the baseline scenario retains access for grazing but puts limits ...

This collection of eight documents is about the Western Woods Cree who lived aboriginally in the boreal forests from Hudson and James Bays westward to the Peace River in Canada. In the early twenty-first century they are found primarily in the region between Lake Superior and Hudson Bay. Mason provides an overview of the Western Woods Cree ethnography; Smith (1981) presents a brief summary of some of the major features of their ethnography dating from the seventeenth to the late twentieth centuries, with an emphasis on the western Swampy and Rocky Cree populations. Two of the studies in this collection by Smith (1976, 1987) discuss and analyze the ethnological myth dealing with the movement of the Western Woods Cree to the southwest areas at the time of the initial Euro-American contact. According to this belief French and English guns gave the Cree technological superiority over their neighbors to the west and southwest and permitted them to move easily into the conquered lands. Evidence for ...

For a little over three decades, the relationship between diet and cancer has been thoroughly researched through quantitative studies, by medical experts in nutrition and cancer. However, the narratives and experiences of cancer patients with respect to food and the emotional climates that surround the nutritional process - understood as an entirely social fact - are understudied. The subordination of this perspective reflects short-sightedness towards these narratives. This paper proposes an ethnographic approach to the dietary experience of a group of patients suffering from laryngeal cancer in Spain. Herein we will analyze the senses and meanings they give to the loss of
Diabetes, a disease that constitutes a syndrome, is growing more quickly in societies with precarious living and working conditions. Daily care practices are fundamental in preventing it from progressing. This work shows the heuristic and interpretative value and the explanatory potential of an ethnographic approach and a gender perspective in the analysis of care practices in a group of elder adults living with type 2 diabetes. The research was carried out with diabetes group participants and health professionals in a primary healthcare center in José León Suárez, municipality of San Martín, province of Buenos Aires, during the period 2013-2016 ...
OBJECTIVES: We aimed to explore healthcare professionals experience of treating chronic non-malignant pain by conducting a qualitative evidence synthesis. Understanding this experience from the perspective of healthcare professionals will contribute to improvements in the provision of care. DESIGN: Qualitative evidence synthesis using meta-ethnography. We searched five electronic bibliographic databases from inception to November 2016. We included studies that explore healthcare professionals experience of treating adults with chronic non-malignant pain. We used the GRADE-CERQual framework to rate confidence in review findings. RESULTS: We screened the 954 abstracts and 184 full texts and included 77 published studies reporting the experiences of over 1551 international healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses and other health professionals. We abstracted six themes: (1) a sceptical cultural lens, (2) navigating juxtaposed models of medicine, (3) navigating the geography between patient and

Nicholas Apoifis, Anarchy in Athens: An Ethnography of Militancy, Emotions and Violence (Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2017). In his Ph.D. thesis Anarchy in Athens: An Ethnography of Militancy, Emotions and Violence, the Australian sociologist Nicholas Apoifis has taken on one of the hottest topics in recent anarchist history, namely the anarchist movement of the Greek capital.. Apoifis mentions that he originally wanted to conduct research in two more Greek cities, but that because of the sheer scale of the movement in Athens, I limited my research to this explosive city (p. 11). As far as the international perception of contemporary Greek anarchism is concerned, this makes little difference, as it focuses almost exclusively on what is happening in Athens anyway - in particular, in the Exarcheia neighborhood, which features prominently in Apoifiss book.. In a sense, Anarchy in Athens turns three books into one: there is the academic discussion of social movement theory; there is ...

For scholars of African history, anthropology offers a number of valuable and invigorating methodological avenues, from engaging directly in ethnographic fieldwork to analyzing anthropological data compiled by others. Given the asymmetries of written documents and the biases of archival material for Africa, anthropological methods and sources offer a different type of access to those who, for various reasons, tend not to appear in other forms of documentary record. The materials of past ethnographic research-texts and material objects, produced and collected by anthropologists and their assistants as well as by missionaries, government officials, travelers, and others-constitute one of the largest categories of written source material. However, the contexts in which such research was conducted can present certain challenges when using these materials as sources. For example, the complex entanglements between colonial governance and the making of anthropological knowledge make it imperative for

In order to do this properly, it is necessary to abandon conventional national and regional classifications of research schools. The three Scandinavian countries, and Finland could also be included, have distinct academic histories, and sociocultural anthropology has slightly different priorities and identities in each country: Contemporary Swedish anthropology grew out of global explorations, European ethnology and more recent Anglo-American influences; Danish anthropology has a strong historical connection to ethnographic studies of Greenland and has been equally shaped by American and British anthropology; while Finnish anthropology has a dual, recent heritage in sociology and ethnology. The main current of Norwegian anthropology, by contrast, has since the late 1950s virtually been a branch of British social anthropology. Most Norwegian anthropologists can be considered matrilateral nephews and nieces of British social anthropologists anyway, with Fredrik Barth playing the part of the mother ...

In another recent ethnographic study of graphic designers titled Routinized Labor in the Graphic Design Studio published by AnneMarie Dorland, on-site ethnographic research at a Canadian design and branding firm was conducted. Dorland addressed the extensive auditing and management practices that regulate opportunities for creativity in these settings.[56] Guy Julier expanded on this line of inquiry in his book Economies of Design when he stated that the two sides of design are commercial demands and creative autonomy, both of which are, part of the necessary, rational activities of its economic work.[57] In reality, there is less autonomy than one would think (or would be prescribed in a creative climate), and it is a given graphic design firms clearly articulated processes and procedures that will determine a designers success in that environment.[58] Both Dorland and Murray observed that when the managerially imposed constraint of limited time allotted to the generation of creative ...
BACKGROUND: Clinical, experimental, and ethnographic research suggests that cannabis may be used to help manage pain. Ethnographic research has revealed that some people are using cannabis to temper their illicit opioid use. We seek to learn if there is an association between cannabis use and the frequency of nonmedical opioid use among people who inject drugs (PWID). METHODS: PWID were recruited using targeted sampling methods in Los Angeles and San Francisco, California, 2011-2013. We limited analysis to people who used opioids in past 30 days (N=653).

SM: Welcome, Dr. Watkins. Rachel Watkins: Thank you.. SM: So, Dr. Watkins, how can we as anthropologists, start to trace the history of this concept? RW: Well, as a biological anthropologist Im connected personally to the discipline that is largely-or its noted as being-largely responsible for the concept, in that the scientists who ushered in biological anthropology as a profession, as well as a discipline, were largely anatomists and doctors who believed in this notion of essential difference between groups of people. So, in other words, the kind of surface level differences-skin color, hair texture, what have you-were attributed a level of significance that really kind of belies their biological power, in that people are not reducible to these traits that we think of as racial. They all reflect biological possibilities that we all have.. SM: Okay, and what was the time period, or the context, in which these ideas about fundamental human difference on the basis of appearance became popular? ...
Families of children with low incidence, severe disabilities have unique needs, which may not be revealed through traditional assessment. Qualitative studies, using multiple data sources allow professionals a more realistic view from families perspectives. Nine year old twins with Angelman syndrome and their families participated in this qualitative study. Information from previous ethnographic interviews of family members revealed three domains. These domains then framed additional data collection using results from a questionnaire, parent interview, and observations at home. Two overarching themes were identified: current differences between the twins and ways each encounters communication and learning. These data will be used to address goals and intervention. Results demonstrate how qualitative approaches allow identification of childrens preferences and familys priorities ...

This volume honours Ann Chownings contributions to anthropology as a whole and to the anthropology of Melanesia in particular. It reflects the scope of her interests by bringing together a wide range of scholars and topics. A biographical narrative (by Judith Huntsman) of her life to date traces her career and there is a comprehensive bibliography of her works (Kathryn Creely). The essays deal primarily with issues in Oceania, except for two addressing one of her favourite pasttimes detective fiction, as a source of innovative word formation (Laurie Bauer) and its parallels to ethnography (Claudia Gross). Three archaeology essays discuss stone artefacts in Papua New Guinea (Pamela Swadling, Jim Specht, Susan Buhner), and one essay surveys dental morphology in Oceania (Daris R. Swindler). Essays in linguistics range from surveys of Oceanic plant names (Malcolm Ross), Proto Micronesian (Ward II. Goodcnough) and Proto Oceanic (Andrew Pawley) to detailed analyses of the languages of Tokelau (Robin Hooper)
This study examined the concept of seating discomfort in a population of full-time wheelchair users with intact sensation. The goal was to construct a tool that would quantify seating discomfort experienced by wheelchair users. Ten participants were interviewed using ethnographic interview techniques. Data were analyzed using a cross-classifying matrix to examine commonalities among the 10 participants responses. There were 16 discomfort and 13 comfort descriptors used by the participants. Of these, eight discomfort and five comfort descriptors were selected to include in the Wheelchair Seating Discomfort Assessment Tool (WcS-DAT). The discomfort descriptors selected were: aches and pains, need to move, pressure points, feeling poorly positioned, unable to concentrate, instability, not comfortable, and feeling too hot, cold or damp. The comfort descriptors selected were: absence of discomfort, feeling good, having no pain, able to concentrate, and feeling stable. The WcS-DAT also includes ...
Abstract: The purpose of this dissertation was to understand the phenomenon of shopping locally from the perspective of the consumer and the store owner and within the context of a revitalized downtown. The three objectives of this study were: (1) to explore the reasons why consumers choose to shop locally in revitalized downtowns, (2) to investigate the reasons why store owners choose to operate within the revitalized downtown, and (3) to consider the implications of shopping locally within the revitalized downtown context for the broader community. Few studies examine the significance of shopping locally and what this means for downtown revitalization. Therefore, this dissertation fills a gap in the academic literature by exploring the experiences of consumers who shop locally and local retail owners who establish businesses within the downtown. An ethnographic approach to research was used to address the purpose of this study. Data collection methods included in-depth and field interviews, ...

Ethnographers are stealing tricks and tools from lawyers, artists, historians, film makers, and biologists. We are also pushing the bounds of the political with performative interventions. In order to study elusive facets of power, anthropologists and allied culture workers are adding new tactics to the tool kit of ethnography. Tactical interventions for Michel de Certeau (1984), involve using texts and artifacts in creative and rebellious ways, constantly manipulating events and seizing opportunities on the wing. The Tactical Media movement of the 1990s in the arts, whose heroes included the prankster, the hacker, and the camcorder kamikaze, drew on de Certeaus ideas to develop an aesthetic of poaching and tricking (Garcia and Lovink 1997). Cheap Do It Yourself (DIY) media-consumer electronics and laboratory equipment-enabled artists in this movement to interrogate political, economic, and ethical questions by designing video games, setting up elaborate hoaxes, and even creating their own ...
This course sets out to explore the tension between expert and non-expert knowledges. We live in a world where experts appear to rule our lives, yet where expertise is also distrusted. In other contexts it is asserted that we are all experts, yet people are also wary of phoney or cult science. Who has the authority and the expertise to meaningfully engage the challenges of climate change, of human health, of food security, of poverty, of technological possibility? Through close reading of ethnographies we will explore the complex relationship between science and the social that are highlighted by these diverse responses to and understandings of expertise. The focus will be on the social processes through which expert knowledges are performed, how they become or fail to become authoritative, how they are distinguished from practical, everyday or contingent knowledges. We will look at how the separation between the social and the technical, or the human and the non-human came to ...
