For the past decade the function of the ethnographer's work has been challenged. Ethnographic texts are now deconstructed for their origins, their biases and their literary devices, and the boundaries of the genre have been expanded through experiments in presentation.

This volume explores many of the dimensions of the representational challenge to contemporary ethnography. The contributors, well-known scholars in their field, cover such topics as: fieldnotes; the role of description, narrative, humour and acknowledgements; the relationship between ethnography and other forms of writing; and alternative means of presenting ethnographic work.
