eHRAF World Cultures
HRAF = Human Relations Area File. Contains ethnographic collections, organized by regions, subregions, and cultures, covering all aspects of cultural and social life, on hundreds of groups of people from around the world.
These are scattered throughout the UCI Libraries' collection, and they do not necessarily have the word ethnography in their title. In the UCI Libraries' ANTPAC catalog, try adding this to a keyword search:
AND (ethnograph* OR ethnolog* OR "case study")
The first-hand, comprehensive, written description of different peoples and their customs (literally, “nation-writing,” from the Greek), focusing on a particular population, place and time, with the goal of accurately describing that culture or ethnic group. This first-hand account is produced through participant observation of the culture or group.
The term covers both the object produced (“she has written an ethnography of the Arawak people”) and the processes and methods of producing it (“what is the future of ethnography?”).
The ethnographic monograph has long been a staple vehicle of anthropological research and theory, and the earliest genuine ethnographies, in this sense, developed in the mid-19th century.
