Through an 'ethnography of ethnographers', this quantity explores the numerous ways that anthropologists develop into and stay interested in the self-discipline. The individuals contemplate the preliminary preconceptions, assumptions and expectancies of themselves as younger anthropologists, and at the ways that early judgements are made approximately fieldwork and in regards to the choice of box destinations. They query how fieldworkers come to appreciate what anthropology is, either as a career and as a private event, via their commitments within the box, in educational departments and in contexts the place their 'specialist wisdom' is termed upon and utilized. They talk about the character of reflexivity that emerges out of anthropological practices, and the ways that this reflexivity impacts ethnographic practices.
Providing reflections on fieldwork in such different areas as Alaska, Melanesia, manhattan and India, the quantity severely displays at the box as a culturally developed website, with blurred barriers that permit the non-public and the pro to permeate one another. It addresses the 'politics of place' that form the anthropologists' involvement in 'the field', in instructing rooms, in improvement tasks and in activist engagements. The trips defined expand past 'the box' and into inter-disciplinary initiatives, commissions, schools and private spheres.
These unique and important contributions supply interesting insights into the connection among anthropologists and the character of the discipline.

Musikvideos sind als moderne Erscheinung in den Diskursen um den zeitgenössischen kulturellen Prozess zu einem populären und auch akademisch anerkannten Untersuchungsgegenstand avanciert. Durch die komplexen ästhetischen Möglichkeiten und durch die Qualität der täglichen Verfügbarkeit stellt das Musikvideo ein attraktives Medium zur Repräsentation und Darstellung von Geschlecht dar. Die ständige Reproduktion von Stereotypen wird oft als bedrohlich erachtet. Die körperliche Präsenz des Musikers bzw. der Musikerin steht im Vordergrund, die Decodierung findet so immer im geschlechtlichen Kontext statt. Die Thematik Geschlecht soll deshalb in dieser Arbeit ins Zentrum der Betrachtung gestellt werden, wobei der Fokus auf die Konstruktion von Weiblichkeit gelegt wird. Ziel dieser Arbeit soll es sein, in diesem Kontext ausgewählte Repräsentationsstrategien von Weiblichkeit darzustellen und zu kategorisieren. Zuvor erfolgt eine Einführung in das Phänomen Musikvideo. Auf das Themenfeld Medienwirkung kann in Folge nur oberflächlich eingegangen werden. Anschließend werden verschiedene Möglichkeiten von Geschlechterrepräsentation in Musikvideos dargestellt und erläutert.
Die Repräsentation der Frau wird zwar von gesellschaftlich dominanten Diskursen bestimmt und somit vor allem von der jeweiligen Vorstellung von Weiblichkeit im jeweiligen kulturellen method, jedoch kann auf dieses Themenfeld innerhalb dieser Arbeit nicht spezifisch eingegangen werden.
