Timothy Austin recently published “Finding Your Island: To Return or Not to Return” in Practicing Anthropology.
Based upon multiple field visits to the same site in northwest Mindanao in the southern Philippines, the issue addressed here is how ethnographic data may differ, pro and con, as the researcher ages and changes over time. Issues of validity, reliability, and even potential creativity of insights are touched upon as variables in long-term research to the same locale.
