This collection of essays are on the cutting edge of ethnographic methods that are based in a critique of critical ethnography. These chapters are based in the assumption that ethnography is the ultimate colonialist project and critical theory is the ultimate modernist project. They push the boundaries of positionality, representation, objectivity, and politics.
