Summary "In addition to the traditional use of participant observation, ethnographic researchers have developed a variety of other methods to obtain information. Visual anthropology has had a long tradition of audio, film and still photographs, now supplemented with video and computer multimedia techniques. Focused group interviews are now regularly used by ethnographers. Elicitation techniques - such as triads, pile sorts and freelists - were developed by cognitive anthropologists as a systematic way of understanding the cultural categories defined by members of a group. In this brief volume, these three sets of methods are explained in simple, practical language."--BOOK JACKET
