Question 1: The readings for “Topic 3: Fieldwork” all touched on, to varying degrees, ethical concerns related to the idea of doing ethnography. Did the readings and video raise any ethical issues that concerned you? You can think of either ethical issues the authors raised or (more interestingly) things that struck you as problematic. As the Peterson article hinted at, for example, there was a controversy about Chagnon’s work with the Yanomami. (I encourage you to look this up on Wikipedia or Google Darkness in El Dorado.) What ethical obligations do you think anthropologists should have to the people they study? Why? Support your answer with examples from the readings.
