Ethnomusicological fieldwork has significantly changed since the end of the the 20th century. Ethnomusicology is in a critical moment that requires new perspecitves on fieldwork - perspectives that are not addressed in the standard guides to ethnomusicological or anthropological method. The focus in ethnomusicological writing and teaching has traditionally centered around analyses and ethnographic representations of musical cultures, rather than on the personal world of understanding, experience, knowing, and doing fieldwork. Shadows in the Field deliberately shifts the focus of ethnomusicology and of ethnography in general from representation (text) to experience (fieldwork). The "new fieldwork" moves beyond mere data collection and has become a defining characteristic of ethnomusicology that engages the scholar in meaningful human contexts. In this new edition of Shadows in the Field, renowned ethnomusicologists explore the roles they themselves act out while performing fieldwork and pose significant questions for the field: What are the new directions in ethnomusicological fieldwork? Where does fieldwork of "the past" fit into these theories? And above all, what do we see when we acknowledge the shadows we cast in the field? The second edition of Shadows in the Field includes updates of all existing chapters, a new preface by Bruno Nettl, and seven new chapters addressing critical issues and concerns that have become increasingly relevant since the first edition.

Der vorliegende Band analysiert das sich wandelnde Fußballspiel in Deutschland und England vor dem Hintergrund der Frage: Lässt sich im Kontext des globalisierten, postmodernen Fußballspiels noch von nationalen Fußballkulturen sprechen, die sich deutlich voneinander unterscheiden? Die deutschen und englischen Beiträge betrachten dazu eine Reihe unter-schiedlicher Phänomene, wie etwa die soziale Herkunft der Fans, kommerzielle Einflüsse, Frauenfußball und vor allem die Rolle der Massenmedien. British and German authors analyse the changing face of football in England and Germany. The book addresses in particular the question of whether one can still speak, in the context of a globalised, postmodern game, of national football cultures that are clearly distinguishable from one another. Contributions in English and German examine a number of different phenomena such as the social background of fans, commercial influences, women’s football and above all the role of the mass media.

This book was the first broad expos� of the social and environmental damage inflicted by the growth of corporate agriculture in California. Factories in the Field--together with the work of Dorothea Lange, Paul Taylor, and John Steinbeck--dramatizes the misery of the dust bowl migrants hoping to find work in California agriculture. McWilliams starts with the scandals of the Spanish land grant purchases, and continues on to examine the experience of the various ethnic groups that have provided labor for California's agricultural industry--Chinese, Japanese, Mexicans, Filipinos, Armenians--the strikes, and the efforts to organize labor unions

What is it like to be an anthropologist or, more specifically, a woman anthropologist? Here we see highly trained and qualified women anthropologists examining their own efforts to live and work in alien cultures in many parts of the world. New chapters have been added to this ground-breaking volume, and each contributor is, in one way or another, a pioneer. All have chosen to devote their lives and energies to the understanding of worlds not their own. All have felt it important to explain what they do, why they do it, and how they feel about their work. Cultures vary widely in their perception of a woman engaged in anthropological field work. Each of these women has had to deal with the influence of her gender, as well as the subject of her study, on the mechanics of establishing a living-working relationship with people of another culture. The diversity of their responses to the presence of a foreign woman at work in their midst gives the book an invaluable cross-cultural perspective, as does the great variety of reactions and strategies on the part of the authors themselves. Besides providing rare insight into field work in general, Women in the Field mirrors the difficulties and delights of any person thrust into an unfamiliar culture.

All too often anthropologists and other social scientists go into the field with unrealistic expectations. Different cultural milieus are prime ground for misunderstandings, misinterpretations, and interrelational problems. This book is an excellent introduction to real-world ethnography, using familiar and not-so-familiar cultures as cases. The book covers participant observation and ethnographic interviewing, both short and long term. These methodologies are open to problems such as lack of communication, depression, hostility, danger, and moral and ethical dilemmas—problems that are usually sanitized for publication and ignored in the curriculum. Among the intriguing topics covered are sexualized and violent environments, secrecy and disclosure, multiple roles and allegiances, insider/outsider issues, and negotiating friendship and objectivity.

This book offers an invaluable look at what cultural anthropologists do when they are in the field. Through fascinating and often entertaining accounts of their lives and work in varied cultural settings, the authors describe the many forms fieldwork can take, the kinds of questions anthropologists ask, and the common problems they encounter. From these accounts and the experiences of the student field workers the authors have mentored over the years, In the Field makes a powerful case for the value of the anthropological approach to knowledge.

The Field Orientation Principle (FOP) constitutes a fundamental concept behind the modern technology of high-performance, vector-controlled drive systems with AC motors. The recent intense interest in these systems has been spawned by the widespread transition from DC to AC drives in industry. Induction motors, industry's traditional workhorses, are particularly well suited for FOP-based vector control. The Field Orientation Principle in Control of Induction Motors presents the FOP in a simple, easy-to-understand framework based on the space-vector dynamic model of the induction machine. Relationships between the classic phasor equivalent circuits of the motor and their vector counterparts are highlighted. A step-by-step derivation of dynamic equations of the motor provides a formal background for explanation of the basic approaches to vector control. In addition, the author presents scalar control methods for low-performance drives as an intermediate stage between uncontrolled and high-performance drives. The reader will also find a full chapter devoted to power inverters, which constitute an important component of adjustable speed AC drive systems, and a review of associated issues such as observers of motor variables, parameter estimation, adaptive tuning, and principles of the position and speed control of field-oriented induction motors. With a wealth of numerical examples and computer simulations illustrating the ideas and techniques discussed and an extensive bibliography, The Field Orientation Principle in Control of Induction Motors is a practical resource and valuable reference for researchers and students interested in motor control, power and industrial electronics, and control theory.

The result of the second part of the project is a comprehensive Directory of civil society organisations working in the field of missing and sexually exploited children. The directory contains information on the mission, role, structure, practices and contact details of over 250 of such organisations in the 15 EU Member States and 4 Candidate States, including national approaches on their cooperation with the competent authorities. It is the first practical Europe-wide directory for supporting day-to-day national and international cooperation between and with civil society organisations working in the field of missing and sexually exploited children. Child Focus and IRCP hope the directory proves to be a valuable tool in helping and assisting child victims, parents and practitioners throughout Europe. Alongside with this printed version, the project team has also released the information contained in the directory in an even more user-friendly, interactive format, producing a searchable database on CD-rom and creating the current Childoscope website, which offers on-line access to the updated and extendable database information.

Modern zoological research [] aims to study the animal in its own dwelling place. Otto Zacharias, a German plankton specialist and former science journalist, made this claim in 1905. More than hundred years later, it might sound surprising. When we think of sites of animal research that symbolize modernity, the first places that come to mind are "not"to use Zacharias s examplethe parts of inland lakes favored by freshwater plankton. The period around 1900, after all, witnessed the rise of grand urban research institutes that housed industrial-type laboratories filled with mercury pumps, new-fangled microscopes, galvanometers, electric centrifuges, gas motors, and spectrometers. Yet Zacharias belonged to a group of zoologists who were establishing a novel way of studying nature in the field. They developed what ecologists today describe as place-based research. It focuses on complex systems of interacting organisms, usually through studies over long periods of time in a natural field context. This was a modern approach and, as such, it needed modern infrastructure: the field station. Beginning in the 1870s, a growing number of biological field stations were foundedfirst in Europe and later elsewhere around the world. Thousands of zoologists received their training and performed their research at these sites. By revealing the intricate activities that enabled them to perform science in the animal s dwelling place, Raf de Bont is the first to give this history of how life scientists were brought closer to living nature.
