If you have a question about this talk, please contact Rebecca Roberts.

How do we negotiate our familial and professional relationships while in the field? Can the private and the professional self truly be separate, even when far away from home? What can be done differently in planning and organising fieldwork to make it more inclusive for women with small children? What are the provisions to make women feel more comfortable to participate in fieldwork? How central is fieldwork to our work? What and who is excluded with a heavy focus on fieldwork for primary data collection?
