Fieldwork Today

(p.294) Epilogue
At Home and in the Field

Geoffrey White

University of Hawai'i Press

This concluding chapter reviews the issues taken up in this volume, exploring the varied dimensions of fieldwork and the variety of geopolitical fictions that have long facilitated dialogue in the sociocultural disciplines. It returns to key themes repeatedly encountered throughout this book, such as indigeneity, the advent of technology, and perhaps more broadly, spatial metaphors, such as those explored in online networks or stories of border crossing. Most of all, however, the contributions to this volume confront and articulate the shifting ethics of fieldwork in an era when globalization is intensifying the politics of the local at the same time it expands the reach of global connectivity. The chapter then concludes with further prospects for fieldwork in the future.

Keywords:   ethnographic fieldwork, geopolitical fictions, sociocultural disciplines, fieldwork ethics, globalization
