Anthropology : Introduction

A key element in social anthropological research is ethnographic participant observation – a practiced that involves long-term participation in the lives of the peoples who the anthropologist seeks to understand. What I have selected here are texts that explore the lives of peoples and the animals with whom that share their lives. In the field of Human-Animal Studies I believe that ethnographic texts offer a rich insight into their shared worlds. I have selected texts focused on relationships between humans and other animals in very different contexts across the world. A disclaimer. These texts are not representative of particular cultural diversities, rather, they are texts I admire.
