Writing Ethnographies: Contribution to a Dialogue.
Fiske, John
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v77 n3 p330-35 Aug 1991
Explores some implications of the redefinition of ethnography as discursive practice, of ethnography as "writing the other." Asserts that a central problem in discourse theory is the relationship between discourse and nondiscursive "reality." Argues ethnography is discursive rather than empiricist. Asserts that conflictual social theories produce knowledges which are better methodologically and ethically/politically. (PRA)
