Good Essays
I’ve noticed that when writing a fieldwork you have to be able to step in and step out of the subculture you’re studying. You also must maintain your stand as an outsider and also be very detailed with your description in order to give the reader an insider view and know how it feels like to be part of that subculture. Thus you and the reader will have a deeper understanding of both yourself and the community you’re observing.

Like Rick Zollo, Ivana observes and participates in this subculture to show the ways its members experience the world.
