Field Reports & Memoirs


Chinese Fieldwork Reports

Chinese fieldwork reports (diaocha ji, i.e. local surveys based on 1950s-60s fieldwork) are usually detailed studies of some particular community, monastery, estate, etc. So while the titles often indicate the broad region studied, the actual surveys were local history and society studies, conducted using anthropological and sociological methods.
