"Fieldwork and Footnotes" discusses general themes within the history of anthropology in Europe and considers recent debates in the history of science on the construction of knowledge. Questioning whether it is possible to identify distinct anthropological traditions within European anthropology, it includes contributions on ethnography and ethnology in Europe, the United States, and Mexico.
"Fieldwork and Footnotes" represents current anthropological research in a variety of countries including Germany, Poland, Sweden, Slovenia and Spain.
