Summary
Disasters in Field Research is your guide to what can go wrong while conducting fieldwork{u2014}and what you can do to avoid or minimize the impact of unexpected events. Ice, Dufour, and Stevens address the issues confronting both students and professional researchers as they embark on field research. For example, permits may be difficult to obtain{u2014}or even revoked at the last minute. Cultural differences and misunderstandings can disrupt data collection. Equipment can be held up by customs{u2014}or fail to work as expected. The authors offer practical advice on preparing for such possibilities, while active researchers from a wide array of disciplines relate, in brief first-person narratives, their own encounters with disaster, how they solved (or failed to solve) the problem, and their recommendations for avoiding similar issues in the future.--Provided by publisher
