Varieties of Self: Anthropology in the Age of Uncertainty.

13175. Varieties of Self: Anthropology in the Age of Uncertainty.

Well-informed summary of the development of a 'feminist' school in anthropology, its relation to other critical movements in social science, and the question of objectivity/subjectivity in fieldwork. Includes the "first wave" of feminism in anthropology in the 1800's, the modern movement of feminism in anthro since 1971, growth of doubt that the fieldworker can ever be "neutral," similarities and conflicts between feminist school and the self-consciously "post-modern" school that peaked in the late 1980's, and a survey of recent attitudes toward and treatments of the objectivity/subjectivity problem in fieldwork. 9 pages, 25 footnotes, 6 bibliographic sources.
