Fieldwork Archive

The Fieldwork Archive collects ethnographic materials on sacred sites and communities, including images, audios, videos, field-notes, and ethnographic essays. It is designed to classify, organize, and share links to fieldwork materials concerning these sites that have been used, shared, transferred, or are otherwise connected to multiple communities. The Fieldwork Archive provides direct access to the actual materials through hyperlinks and downloadable files, unlike the Repository, which presents bibliographic references (citations) to published works.

The primary tool shared by most of the projects on the website is the repository, a catalog of references to bibliographic and multimedia publications on the subject of shared sacred sites. The catalog providing references and links to a large collection of relevant materials used in the study of shared sacred sites. While this typically means references to traditional (offline) books and articles, increasingly this material is appearing online, and wherever possible a hyperlink to the publication is provided. The repository is continually enhanced through the addition of new publications.
