520 |a This book, based on the author's ethnographic fieldwork in the Palestinian West Bank from 1995 to 1996, aims to provide an honest, authentic, and accurate accounting of the nitty-gritty, day-to-day challenges, rewards, failures, and successes of doing fieldwork in a conservative village setting. By focussing on the intimate, typically obscured aspects of the fieldwork experience this memoir is intended for students planning to do fieldwork in any locale. Celia E. Rothenberg is Associate Professor in the Department of Religious Studies at McMaster University, Canada. She has carried out ethnographic fieldwork with Palestinians in the West Bank village of Artas, Palestinians in Toronto, and with various Jewish groups in North America, focusing on new and evolving forms of Jewish thought and practice.
