Performing confessions: making sense afterwards of field immersion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contributionpeer-review


This paper is about memory, anthropological fieldwork and writing, conceptions of time, and the performance of storytelling. It comes out of my film project—a documentary about Joanne Good, an anthropology student. In the process of researching and filming, I have begun asking questions about how fieldworkers make sense of the time they spend in the field.
