15581. Freedom in Fulani Social Life (Riesman) and Veiled Sentiments (Abu-Lughod).
In both of these ethnographic studies, the researchers lived among the people they were studying, and both researchers incorporated their own perspectives and experiences into their methodologies. It is argued that, of the two, Abu-Lughod was more successful in absorbing herself into the culture she studied; as a result, her work is more engaging and provides deeper insights. 13 pages, 34 footnotes, 2 bibliographic sources.
