I have an undergraduate studnet--a woman--who has recently returned from
a semester studying the Rom of Spain. She is feeling rather out-of-sorts;
a return-from-the-field culture shock. Unfortunately, I can't recall much
in the way of literature for her to read on this topic as she grapples with
her own identity via "college student" again. I--and she--would certainly
appreicae any references, e.g. articles, chapters in books on "how to do"
ethnography, etc.

Thanks, and pardon the typos,
