chapter  4
Group fieldwork: short field visits and residential study tours
Pages 20

The next two chapters consider how you can get the best out of doing fieldwork. The information is aimed directly at you as a neophyte researcher engaging with religion off campus. This chapter focuses on group fieldwork, organised by a tutor, where you probably are not involved much in choosing the places or planning exactly what you do when you are there. The following one deals with all the differing aspects of doing independent fieldwork. Obviously there is overlap in the skills needed for any study in the field, so when you have read this chapter youmight like to read the sections in chapter 5 that are relevant to your group fieldwork.
