A purpose of this series is to encourage ethnographic writing that is flexible enough to give a voice to the people whose lives it records, to recreate those lives rather than merely describe them, and to encompass in this recreation the complexity, ambiguity, and emotion that are central to human experience. This flexibility can be achieved through the use of narration, first person and multiple points of view, dialogue, descriptive imagery, and other literary techniques.
