Adventure and Regulation in Contemporary Anthropological Fieldwork

To establish ourselves as professionals, anthropologists have long tended to downplay the adversities we encounter — distrust, opposition, calamity, irreducible ambiguity — in order to protect the credibility of our research. Even the rather attractive category of adventure usually finds a place only in our memoirs or popular treatments, not in peer-reviewed articles and books. Candid portrayals of adventures and the complications they leave behind could undermine the air of impartial authority for which most of us strive. Now that cultural anthropology has become absorbed in how our position as observers affects the knowledge we produce, the anthropologist as adventurer becomes pertinent in a new way. But anthropologists who boast of adventures in some contexts will have good reason to deny them in others.
