the (often) meandering travels of a student anthropologist
Raw Field Notes
What follows are my field notes for the Rubber Tramp Goddess's project. Initially, this covers my fieldwork that took place from summer of 2017–when I was renovating Juno–through my participant observation out west, and finally, my return east during the spring of 2018.
I say "raw", because with only minimal modifications and editing, they serve to offer a glimpse of what often can be the emotional and conflicted experience of an ethnographer. I am human, flawed, hold opinions, carry the burden of prejudice and like anyone find navigating social experiences messy. And, as humans we are adaptive. Experience changes our perspectives and we evolve. Raw field notes, the capture of 'movement', potentially offers something that 'static' and final analysis can't. More about that in my Discussion of Methods.
This is currently a working space and posts will be added through the conclusion of the project.
