Help your students apply their anthropological toolkit to the real world.

Ethnographic fieldwork is one of the most fundamental (and for students, sometimes daunting) tools for anthropological study. An excellent supplement to the introductory textbook Cultural Anthropology: A Toolkit for a Global Age, Second Edition, Ken Guest's Cultural Anthropology Fieldwork Journal, Second Edition, helps students apply the concepts they are learning in class while out in the real world. The step-by-step exercises in the Fieldwork Journal encourage students to observe, question, and generate their own data about the places, relationships, and networks that they may take for granted in everyday life: from friendships, family dynamics, and consumption habits to classrooms, places of worship, TV screens, and their own homes.

Every activity in the Fieldwork Journal enhances students' understanding of the concepts covered in Cultural Anthropology: A Toolkit for a Global Age. Practicing fieldwork skills such as note-taking, interviewing, map-making, and drawing large-scale conclusions from careful observation will engage students more deeply in the course material. Compact and easy to use, the Fieldwork Journal includes space to write notes and record data.
