How to find ethnographies

Are you working on an assignment where you've been asked to find an ethnography? Denison's library catalog (CONSORT) has many such works, but they can be hard to find. This is because they typically aren't labeled as ethnographies in the catalog record.

So how to find ethnographies in CONSORT? One way is to search for a geographical area or group of people you're interested in, and then add "social life and customs" to your search.


In addition, you can search CONSORT for the following book series, which tend to include ethnographies:


  • Anthropology of Contemporary Issues (Cornell University Press)
  • Contemporary Ethnography (University of Pennsylvania Press)
  • Culture, Place and Nature (University of Washington Press)
  • Interpretations of Culture in the New Millennium (University of Illinois Press)
  • Issues of Globalization: Case Studies in Contemporary Anthropology
