Ethnological Field Training in the Mezquital Valley, Mexico. Papers from the Ixmiquilpan Field Schools in Cultural Anthropology and Linguistics.
Kenny, Michael, Ed.; Bernard, H. Russell, Ed.
Thirteen papers by graduate students who participated in a 1971 summer field program in Hidalgo, Mexico, are presented. Twelve of the papers are presented in the English language and one is presented in Spanish. Research for seven of the papers was undertaken in established Otomi Indian villages or hamlets. Research for the remaining six papers was undertaken in small towns inhabited by mestizos, Otomi Indians, and, in some cases, a foreign minority. A wide variety of research techniques was used, including sophisticated urban anthropological methods, ethnoscience techniques, linguistic and psycholinguistic techniques, observation, and interviews. Titles are "Use of Photographs with Q Methodology in the Mezquital Valley"; "Domesticated Animals and Village Nucleation"; "Culture Change and Intergroup Relations in a Small Mexican Town"; "Marketing by Female Vendors in Mexico"; "Self-Help and Directed Culture Change in an Otomi Village"; "Cultural Aspects of Diet in El Espiritu, Hidalgo"; "A Componential Analysis of the Otomi Animal Domain"; "The Political Organization of the Judicial District and the Municipal Government of Ixmiquilpan, Hidalgo"; "Education: Aspiration and Opportunity in a Mexican Town"; "A Case Study of a Catholic Youth Organization in a Provincial Mexican Town"; "The Making of an Anthropologist: Phase 1.5"; "Environment, Production, and Subsistence: Economic Patterns in a Rural Otomi Community"; and "The Pattern of Settlement in an Otomi Village: Structural Relations Among Outlying Neighborhoods."
