Expeditionary Anthropology : Teamwork, Travel and the 'Science of Man', Hardback Book

Expeditionary Anthropology : Teamwork, Travel and the 'Science of Man' Hardback

Edited by Martin Thomas, Amanda Harris

Part of the Methodology & History in Anthropology series

Description

The origins of anthropology lie in expeditionary journeys.

But since the rise of immersive fieldwork, usually by a sole investigator, the older tradition of team-based social research has been largely eclipsed.

Expeditionary Anthropology argues that expeditions have much to tell us about anthropologists and the people they studied.

The book charts the diversity of anthropological expeditions and analyses the often passionate arguments they provoked.

Drawing on recent developments in gender studies, indigenous studies and the history of science, the book argues that even today, the `science of man' is deeply inscribed by its connections with expeditionary travel.
