Cultural Anthropology has made ethnographic writing a central topic of concern. See, for example Elizabeth Enslin's "Beyond Writing: Feminist Practice and the Limitations of Ethnography" (1994) or David Samuels' "'These Are the Stories That the Dogs Tell': Discourses of Identity and Difference in Ethnography and Science Fiction" (1996). The figure of the shaman has also received ethnographic attention. See, Jean Jackson's "Preserving Indian Culture: Shaman Schools and Ethno-Education in the Vaupes, Colombia" (1995).
