William M. Cotter publishes an article in the Arizona Anthropologist on short-term fieldwork

William Cotter, Joint PhD student in Anthropology and Linguistics, recently published an article in the Arizona Anthropologist (Vol. 26, p. 23-35) entitled “On depression, anxiety, and looking for the silver lining in short term fieldwork”. Drawing from his recent pilot fieldwork trip in northern Jordan, his notes-from-the-field contribution focuses on the emotional challenges of short-term fieldwork. The article also discusses broader issues surrounding research focusing on marginalized communities and the positionally of white, American researchers within these communities. The article is available in the accompanying link.
