Environmental Non-governmental Organizations and the Nature of Ethnographic Inquiry

In this essay I argue that NGO discourses about people, nature, and culture have changed the nature of anthropological and ethnographic inquiry in situations in which we work with and for NGOs, and in situations where we merely work in the same physical spaces as NGOs. My arguments are focused upon environmentally concerned NGOs and discourses about the relationship between culture (the social practices of people) and nature (biological diversity). I agree with Brosius when he argues that environmentally focused discourses come to constitute reality and that they, "in their constitutiveness define various forms of agency, administer certain silences, and prescribe various forms of intervention" (Brosius 1999:277– 278).
