Although I am loathe to recommend anything affiliated with Arizona
State University's Anthropology department, Dr. Michael Winkelman runs a
very nice ethnographic field school just over the border (in Mexico) each
year. It involves training in participant observation, field interview
techniques, an opportunity to learn Spanish, and a chance to work on an
ongoing project.

Although Dr. Winkelman has an e-mail address, I'm not certain he
monitors his e-mail regularly these days. Your best bet is probably to call
the department and ask the secretary to send you the info brochure. The
phone number is (602) 956-6213.

Good luck!
