WanderinG in the Field

Upon my momentous return to Morocco, I have decided to blog in the semi-academic sense. When you are a graduate student, if you haven’t written papers, blogs, or anything in a long time, getting back to writing can be scary. To counter the “ONLY fieldnotes”-genre of writing, I’ve decided to share stories from the field and my tips and tricks, ups and downs, of conducting fieldwork abroad. I actually love writing, so this is a motivating way to supplement my fieldnotes, think about my fieldwork/research process, and help others learn from my mistakes and triumphs (hopefully more of the latter instead of the former).

I want this also to be a forum where I read about writing and fieldnotes, review books on writing and the research process. If you have any suggestions, comments, and questions, I would love to hear them. This is meant to be part fieldnotes, part ethnography, part research process, and part FUN!
