This Festschrift in honor of Jürg Wassmann compiles essays about ethnographic fieldwork which bear witness to the diversity of experiences possible in this classic method in social and cultural anthropology. Following the academic life-course of an anthropologist, the contributions to this volume speak of personal and/or professional moments in the field. They shed light on different approaches to the field, of research over long distances or long periods of time, of research in unexpected areas or with surprising interdisciplinary agendas. It becomes clear that fieldwork is far from becoming a redundant or old-fashioned tool in the methodological canon of the discipline – through its multitude of facets it remains central and authoritative for the empiricist approach in anthropology.
