The reciprocity between anthropologist and informant

"...There is a little sense of him studying them...."

"...the limiting of distance between "expert" and the subject, the trust that is built up and the ethical foundations of such research, which enable those who are its subjects to influence the agenda (Kehily (ed.) 2007:53 - Understanding youth. Perspectives, identities and practice. SAGE.)

2008 - the year I concentrate on writing my dissertation. Workingcurrently on few case studies and MindMaps. Friend of mine has recommended interesting publication on youth research.
Yes, it's a hint. I think that "Understanding youth. Perspectives, identities and practice" is a brilliant book. Not only it give insight in to different research strategies but includes also exercise orchestrated along relevant questions.
