Constructions of culture: a methodological and empirical approach

This project involves two separate parts. First, I will try to develop the concept of 'styles of inquiry' by analysing the written work of and by engaging in dialogues with fourteen leading scholars, who represent different approaches to the study of cultural phenomena. Second, I will analyse the body of ethnographic and historical material which I have collected in Manus, Papua New Guinea, over a number of years in order to produce a monograph on processes of cultural change in Manus.
