Sample text

Whereas Crick feared giving too much remuneration to his poorer collaborator, lest the anthropologist lose face and authentic knowledge, Hendry’s wealthier Japanese friend and assistant soon resented payment, since she appeared to lose equal status. Sachiko had believed anthropology to be the study of people lower down the hierarchy and now found herself to be the object of study. Ultimately, the élite graduate was in a strong position to block the invasion of her privacy. Hendry’s account has parallels with those of Caplan and Kenna in that she traced her experience over two decades, in her case, through a single relationship which shifted from friendship to professional collaboration and then to mutual mistrust.

The material became a resource for abstract analysis. Callaway considers that she suppressed Julianah’s voice and, two decades later, is conscious of the alternative texts that might have been generated. Other contributors, notably Marcus and Hastrup, argue that whatever form the dialogue might take, the text is the final construct and responsibility of the author. Even Rapport’s scrupulous attention to how the others experienced his presence, is perforce his own textual construction. In a number of instances the anthropologist’s power of textual production was treated as a resource.
