Out in the Field Reflections of Lesbian and Gay Anthropologists by Ellen Lewin


Definitive and well rounded... Explores how anthropologists manage issues of identity and sexuality in field research and professional life. In an era when the fieldworker's positionality is critical to research and ethnographic writing, this insightful book has much to say to gay and straight researchers alike. -- Louise Lamphere, editor of Structuring Diversity
