Mexican Memoir: A Personal Account of Anthropology and Radical Politics in Oaxaca
ABC-CLIO, 2001 - 149 Seiten
Ensconced in the tight kinship network of a local household in Oaxaca, Mexico, the author embarked on a challenging study of a radical ethnic political movement, COCEI. An anthropologist who married a Zapotec woman, the author chronicles his fieldwork in this memoir. His research is interwoven with his personal experiences and addresses the political dilemmas of contemporary ethnography. Campbell's informants include internationally known politicians, poets, and painters who live in Juchitan, a large city controlled by indigenous activists, giving his study an insider's perspective. While adopting aspects of the postmodern critique of ethnography, the author proposes and illustrates a collaborative form of research based on partisan political commitment. Through a candid and intimate account, he portrays his informants and research site, and his direct involvement in Zapotec society. The book is both a highly readable ethnography of Southern Mexico and a significant contribution to debates about current anthropology.
