Title: The Legacies of Writing Culture and the Near Future of the Ethnographic Form: A Sketch 
Author: Marcus, George E.
Date: 2012-08
Publisher: American Anthropological Association
Citation: Cultural Anthropology, Vol. 27, No. 3 (August 2012): 427-445
Abstract: This article argues that the most lively contemporary legacy of the 1980s Writing Culture critiques now lie outside, or beyond, conventional texts but, rather, in the forms that are integral to fieldwork itself. Fieldwork today requires a kind of collaborative concept work that stimulates studios, archiving, para-sites, which in turn constitute the most innovative expressions of ethnography, difficult to capture in the traditional genre.
