An important way in which the identity of the discipline of Anthropology has been maintained is through its rich tradition of fieldwork.
Over the years different departments across India have developed their own unique ways of approaching and conducting fieldwork with students
of Anthropology in M.Sc. final year. Despite the long tradition, departmental fieldwork and its nuances is one of the lesser discussed topics in
anthropological gatherings. Every department strives hard to maintain this tradition through various strategies to overcome the bottlenecks and
difficulties in handling it. Organising a fieldtrip involves encountering academic and extra academic challenges which have been properly articulated
in various institutional traditions in the last century. However, much opacity prevails as far as its actual practice is concerned. Very rarely, if ever,
colleages across departments talk to each other on such institutional practices.
