Hi all, I've just had my graduation for my Bachelor of Arts degree, and was given some money. I'm wanting to buy something special with it, but was wondering if there is anything I could be putting it towards anthropology career wise?
Any advice (as always :) ) appreciated, Thanks, Ainslee
Congrats with your Bachelor! Though it may not be a "thing" here's one suggestion ;-)
A video camera
A laptop computer
A permit provided by the Government of the country you want to conduct your research in (necessary for publishing in peer reviewed outlets)
Plenty of pencils and blank notebooks.
Read and carry the following book until it is committed to memory
1) How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper. by Robert A. Day
Get a good book on taking Anthropological fieldnotes such as
2) Writing Ethnographic Fieldnotes. by Emerson, Fretz, Shaw
and off ya go
