Organisational Anthropology

Doing Ethnography In and Among Complex Organisations


Organisational Anthropology is a pioneering analysis of doing ethnographic fieldwork in different types of complex organisations. The book focuses on the process of initiating contact, establishing rapport and gaining the trust of the organisation's members.

The contributors work from the premise that doing fieldwork in an organisation shares essential characteristics with fieldwork in more classical anthropological environments, but that it also poses some particular challenges to the ethnographer. These include the ideological or financial interests of the organisations, protection of resources and competition between organisations.

Organisational Anthropology brings together and highlights crucial aspects of doing anthropology in contemporary complex settings, and will have wide appeal to students, researchers and academics in anthropology and organisation studies.
