"[Should] make a useful textbook for undergraduate students in northern anthropology, geography or sociology. The authors constitute an interesting sample of contemporary specialists of Inuit studies, most of them American or Canadian, but with the addition of two scholars from the Old World, one French and one Japanese." North Dakota Quarterly


Over the past decade, some of the most innovative work in anthropology and related fields has been done in the Native communities of circumpolar North America. "Critical Inuit Studies" offers an overview of the current state of Inuit studies by bringing together the insights and fieldwork of more than a dozen scholars from six countries currently working with Native communities in the far north. The volume showcases the latest methodologies and interpretive perspectives, presents a multitude of instructive case studies with individuals and communities, and shares the personal and professional insights from the fieldwork and thought of distinguished researchers.

The wide-ranging topics include the development of a circumpolar research policy, the complex identities of Inuit in the twenty-first century, the transformative relationship between anthropologist and collaborator, the participatory method of conducting research, the interpretation of body gesture and the reproduction of culture, the use of translation in oral history, memory and the construction of a collective Inuit identity, the intricate relationship between politics, indigenous citizenship and resource development, the importance of place names, housing policies and the transition from igloos to permanent houses, and social networks in the urban setting of Montreal. "Critical Inuit Studies" is essential reading for students and scholars interested in today's circumpolar North and in contemporary Native communities. Pamela Stern is an assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. She is the author of "Historical Dictionary of the Inuit". Lisa Stevenson is a research fellow in the Department of Social Medicine at Harvard University.

Many times during my subsequent fieldwork in southwestern Alaska, as I have stood on the threshold of other Eskimo houses thousands of miles to the West, this scene has flashed before my eyes. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

This Inuit Book is Critical to Your Studies 9. Dezember 2008
Von Dana Biscotti Myskowski - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Fantastic book. Great writing. Wonderful case studies. Fascinating tales. I used one on long-term loan from my university library as I worked on my graduate thesis. I felt so sad when I had to hand back the copy that I treated myself to the book for graduation.

Ethnographic insights 15. Juni 2013

This book has multiple chapters that sensitively address ethnographic realities and challenges. As one who has done ethnographic work in a similar region, I appreciated particular characterizations and insights.
Not as Accessible as I had Hoped 22. Oktober 2012
Von Sedat Kulafofski - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased this textbook because I am in the process of moving to the high arctic for work. I had hoped this book would provide a cultural encyclopedia of sorts that could help me adapt to the cultural setting I will be entering. Unfortunately, I think this text is geared more to the academic field of research and not so much to the layperson. I'm sure it's a central piece of research for the field in question, but for me I found large parts of it impenetrable - I guess I just didn't find what I was looking for.
