A person who knows only his own village will not understand it: only by seeing what is familiar in the light of what is the norm elsewhere will we be enabled to think afresh about what we know too well.
(quoted by Weil and McGill, 1989: 4)
Introduction
In July 1995 a colleague and I organised a Human Sciences Study Tour to India, a three-week visit involving twenty-two students from University College, Stockton, U.K. (now renamed University of Durham, Queen's Campus). This tour broke new ground in the teaching and learning of U.K. anthropology, but has not been repeated. This chapter discusses the problems and potential of such a tour, and of fieldwork generally as experiential learning in the social anthropological curriculum. In particular I shall look at the institutional and cultural constraints that make organising such ventures challenging. A person who knows only his own village will not understand it: only by seeing what is familiar in the light of what is the norm elsewhere will we be enabled to think afresh about what we know too well. (quoted by Weil and McGill, 1989: 4)
