The Practice of Writing Ethnographic Fieldnotes
Walford, Geoffrey
Ethnography and Education, v4 n2 p117-130 Jun 2009
Fieldnotes are central to ethnographic practice, yet there is surprisingly little written about how fieldnotes are constructed. This article reports the results of some interviews with four well-known ethnographers of education who were questioned about their practice. It is designed to be a resource for those new (and, maybe not so new) to ethnography.
