Fieldwork in Gitarama Introduction, Setting and Methods

  • Philip Verwimp


This chapter introduces the reader to the field work I have undertaken together with eight graduate students in Gitarama in 2004. The socio-economic and political profile of the province is presented as well as a detailed discussion of our methodological approach. Material from a lengthy interview with préfet Uwizeye brings history alive.
