Document Type

Publication Date



The hypothesis of the paper is twofold. By juxtaposing the two subject-positions of a scholar who is also an employer and a servant who could otherwise be her informant, we illuminate how each is largely constructed by the interaction, and can ponder on how to do anthropology better. Secondly, to the work of several scholars who propose various approaches to these questions, I add the particular insight offered by the perspective of education.
