Through Ellis's interactions with her students, you are given useful strategies for conducting a study, including the need for introspection, the struggles of the budding ethnographic writer, the practical problems in explaining results of this method to outsiders, and the moral and ethical issues that get raised in this intimate form of research.

With an ethnographer's eye, Stacy Holman Jones offers us a cultural critique of torch singing--as much more than the familiar tune of a woman's lamenting her own willing deception and passivity. She takes us into the space between music and language, allowing us to view torch singing not only as an expression of burgeoning desire but also of a more firmly resolved resistance and promise of change. An engaging read for performing arts and music professionals, and instructors in mass media and experimental ethnography.

A Methodology Of The Heart

Education without ethics, without sentiments, without heart, is simply soulless, factual academics and nothing more. In his array of authentic essays, Ronald J. Pelias poetically evokes the spiritual aspects of life in a seemingly dispassionate field—the academy. A Methodology of the Heart presents a procession of situational compositions confronting matters such as family relationships, student/teacher communications, and general life at the university. In his comical yet candid book, Pelias depicts the emotional battle for understanding and honesty within the conventional boundaries of higher education. It introduces such subjects as autoethnography, autobiography, personal narratives, memoir, creative non-fiction, and performative writing. It is absolutely a crucial addition to all book collectors with autoethnographic or communication interests as well as to the general reader attracted to daily life and higher education.

This volume presents the latest explorations in the literary turn in ethnographic work. Centering on autoethnography, personal narrative, ethnographic performance, and the blending of social science and the arts, the articles collected here emphasize embodiment, experiential understanding, participatory ways of knowing, sensuous engagement, and intimate encounter. Drawing from disciplines as diverse as sociology, philosophy, performance studies, psychology, and English, the authors here demonstrate the many ways in which ethnography can be effectively expressed. Contributors include such noted scholars as Laurel Richardson and Ernest Lockridge, Arthur Frank, Michael Angrosino, Kenneth and Mary Gergen, Ron Pelias, and Deborah Reed-Danahay. Accessible and jargon free, this volume should excite scholars and students as to the expanding possibilities for ethnographic presentation.

Elsie Martinez Trujillo Alcaraz, 'Naunny' to her grandson and communication scholar Nick Trujillo, was a working class woman, daughter of New Mexico Hispanos, and eventually the resident of a Los Angeles nursing home. She becomes the focal point for Trujillo's experimental ethnography of family relations, aging, and ethnic identity throughout the twentieth century. Collecting narratives of his grandmother's life, Trujillo learns how family members use stories to define the family's sense of itself and create collective views on intergenerational relations, social history, gender, class, and ethnicity. Through these stories, family photos, and his own recollections, supplemented with Elsie's letters and journal entries, the author is able to explore topics often ignored in life histories of the elderly--sexuality, body image, eating disorders, marital discord, mobility patterns, racial prejudice, and interactions with the health care system. Trujillo's presentation brings Naunny's humor, liveliness, and generosity alive for scholars and students alike and provides a vivid portrait of being Hispanic and female in the 20th century American west.

إذا وجِدَ كتاب يستحق أن يقرأه المراهقون وأولياء الأمور (وأي شخص آخر)، فهو هذا الكتاب - صحيفة دنفر بوست. ميلودي، 11 عامًا، تملك ذاكرة مرآتية، ورأسها مثل آلة تصوير سينمائية تسجل طوال الوقت، ولكن لا يوجد فيها زر للحذف؛ كانت أذكى طفلة في مدرستها، ولكن لم يكن أي إنسان يعرف ذلك؛ فقد اعتقد معظم الناس، ومنهم المعلمون والأطباء، أنها غير قادرة على التعلُّم، وكانت أيام المدرسة - حتى وقت قريب - تمر وهي تستمع باستمرار إلى دروس أحرف الهجاء لمستوى الروضة مرة تلو الأخرى؛ تمنَّت لو أنها تستطيع الصراخ... لو أنها تستطيع إخبار من حولها كيف تفكر، وماذا تعرف؛ لكنها لا تستطيع؛ لأنها لا تقدر على الكلام، ولا تستطيع المشي ولا الكتابة. كانت أشياء كثيرة حبيسة في رأسها ولا تستطيع التعبير عنها، وهذا ما كان يسبب لها الجنون - إلى أن اكتشفت شيئًا جعلها تتكلم لأول مرة في حياتها؛ أخيرًا، أصبح لها صوت، لكن لا يوجد أحد ممن حولها يريد سماعه! العبيكان 2017

لا تتبع أهمية رواية "رجلنا في العراق" من أسلوبها الجديد في السرد المكثف. فأحداث الرواية تقع في أربعة أيام، لكنها حافلة برصد للتحولات في كرواتيا التي كانت جزءا من جمهورية يوغوسلافيا قبل تفككها في مطلع التسعينات. لكن الرواية تستمد أهميتها لقراء العربية لأنها تقدم رواية لعمق تأثير التحولات في تلك الدولة الصغيرة الواقعة على البحر المتوسط على البشر وبأسلوب مشوق. لم يكن "رجلنا في العراق" هو عنوان الرواية في الكرواتية لغتها الأصلية، وإنما كان عنوانها الأصلي "رجلنا في الميدان". لكن ناشر الطبعة الإنجليزية، التي ترجمت عنها الرواية إلى اللغة العربية، اختار هذا العنوان ورأيناه مناسباً للطبعة العربية. قد يوحي عنوان الرواية بأنها رواية عن حرب العراق عام 2003، التي كانت حدثاً عالمياً مركزيا حينذاك، لكنها لم تكن كذلك ولم يكن الرجل الذي لأرسلته إحدى الصحف الكرواتية لتغطية حرب العراق هو بطلها. وقام روبرت بيرشيتش، كاتب الرواية التي نالت عددا من الجوائز الأوروبية، بمحاكاة رائعة لكن في سياق مختلف لرواية "رجلنا في هافانا" للكاتب الانجليزي جرهام جرين لكن في سياق مختلف.
