Following Friedl: Forays into Afircan Fieldwork
This article explores Gottfried Lang’s influence over my enculturation into the theory, method, and practice of cultural anthropology. It traces this influence through three Tanzanian fieldwork experiences. The paper concludes with a reflection on the importance of cultivating a mindset of serendipity when undertaking any kind of anthropological investigation, and an exhortation that this mindset be recognized as an integral component of anthropology.
